    Well done to them, content is king. You can have all the latest gear, software and exotic locations but it isn't worth Jack if your movie is pants. They made a movie for 45, so there is hope for everyone.

    Truly outstanding that such a low budget film can get so much attention. It's pretty inspiring.

    It proves the essential key point of making ANY movie...THE STORY!

    I like improvising, I've built and adapted quite a few props for my first short film that I'm currently shooting, haven't managed to build and adapt a free actor yet, though.
    I like hunting for props, today I'll be scouting around for a few exterior shots of a commercial air extractor, as noisy and grimy as possible.
    I didn't consider this aspect of film making, this practical and props hunting aspect of it, when I first got started, but it's ok by me.

    Marc Price who made Colin is friend of a friend. Have spoken to him a few times and he is a top bloke so thrilled with his success at Cannes. He worked on it for a long time so its great that it has done well. If you have the right idea the size of the budget does not matter.

    Any ideas about how to get actors and actresses for a budget short film?
    I've heard of film makers sending out scouts to public places and just kind of asking people if they want to be in a film.
    Or there's Craigslist.
    I've asked a couple of people if they'd be interested, but no takers so far. Think I need to expand the search area.

    Try websites such as Talent Circle or Casting Call. I have used both of these in the past and found superb actors for my projects. A lot of the time they will work for free so they can build on their showreel as long as you cover their expenses. Local drama groups may also be a possibility.
