Whenever I travel I get my best ideas... My gut feeling is that maybe I should try and make this movie for all little as possible (under $1M). One of my greatest strengths is getting people excited about my projects, and finding good deals. I bet I could even still get name actors! And according to Chris Wyatt, independent films with budgets between $2M and $10M are considered "no man's land". The more money it costs upfront, the bigger the minimum advance you'd need to break even later, potentially condensing the number of distributors able to bid on the film.
