Making a No Budget Movie

The movie adaptation of some of my wife’s poetic short stories has just been entered into the very intense competition to appear at Cannes. They have categories for big budget, mid budget and low budget. And then below that are films like ours, in which a large cast and crew donated their time because they wanted to be a part of an artistic project that excited and fulfilled them.

Huge congratulations to Director Jeff Wedding, who laboured for six years to make A Measure of the Sin a 16mm reality. As the trailer below demonstrates, technology has democratized film making: You don’t need millions of dollars to create cinematic art.
