[Gary Huff] "Do you have any examples of which movies shot for no more than $6,000 look pretty good?"

Local Utah filmmaker Trent Harris made two films (both shot with an HDV camera) for under $6,000. The Delightful Water Universe and Luna Mesa. They are his latest feature-length films.

I am pretty sure his movie the Beaver Trilogy cost less than that also -- but that is not a fair assessment as he used footage he had shot over a couple of decades and already had made into short films.

Trent did get his shot at Hollywood with the Working Title funded Rubin and Ed (starring Crispin Glover) but it didn't really make any money on its initial run, becoming kind of a cult favorite. He also created a local favorite; Plan 10 From Outer Space shot on 16mm for about $60,000.

Also the "looking pretty good" is a relative term. For someone like me that started on soundless super8 and 16mm, moved into VHS and highspeed Betacam cut on a double deck JVC editing suite -- what micro budget filmmakers can produce now-a-days seems pretty good.

Jay and Mark Duplass also created Baghead for a couple of thousand bucks.
