    You can spend tens of thousands of dollars on film school, you can work as a production assistant for a decade and hope to move up the ladder - or you can GET OUT THERE AND MAKE YOUR OWN MOVIE! FILMMAKER IN A BOX shows you - in every possible detail - how one team of Hollywood professionals made, and commercially released, a movie on a micro-budget of $100,000. YOU CAN TOO!

    FILMMAKER IN A BOX is unlike anything you've ever seen. Seriously.

    If you're a lover of movies who dreams of getting behind the camera, you know you own dozens of DVDs with behind-the-scens material that you've watched 100 times. Right?

    But, seriously… When are you going to get the chance to be standing in a field surrounded by 10,000 extras all in custom-made armor filming with 20 cameras? Chances are your first film (or even your second or third) are going to be significantly smaller in scale than that…

    FILMMAKER IN A BOX is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the making of a micro-budget(meaning REALISTIC BUDGET!) feature film. This is a look into how a professional near-no-budget film is made - with EVERY DETAIL available at your fingertips!


    "It shares the kind of lessons that can usually only be learned by doing. Not a lecture, not a seminar, just the honest, accurate, moment-to-moment account of everything it takes to put a film together."

    Earl Newton, Executive Producer/Creator Stranger Things


    How Can FILMMAKER IN A BOX Help You?

    FIB examines the EVERY detail of the making of an independent movie called 2 Million Stupid Women (a comedy written by a woman!), which was made for only $100,000, made within the "Hollywood" system.

    FILMMAKER IN A BOX has ton of INCREDIBLY detailed behind-the-scenes interviews and footage covering every stage of the prep, production and post-production . You'll get interviews and conversations with all key members of the production team: the director, the producers, the writer, the cinematographers, the editor, the production sound mixer, the post production sound designer, the assistant director and more! These are not marketing fluff interviews - these are uncensored, honest and straight-to-the-point discussions about every pitfall, conflict and negotiation required to complete the project.

    In addition - you also get hundreds of pages of the actual documents used to make the film: the full budget (yes! the REAL full budget, line by line see how the money was spent), the schedule, call sheets, every contract, director's notes and MORE.

    FILMMAKER IN A BOX will take you, step-by-step, through the exact process this team took to mount an independent feature film from the ground up. FILMMAKER IN A BOX shines a light on every potential misstep and lucky break that can fall into a first-time (or second or third!) filmmaker's lap.


    "I wish something like this existed when I was starting out... No bulls**t; the next best thing to actually being there with the filmmakers while they were making it!"

    Mark Bell, Owner/Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, FilmThreat
