Carlo Ledesma is marketing and financing his film in a very unique way. The budget is being supplemented by selling each frame of his film The Tunnel for a dollar and with 135K frames that is a lot of dollars for an Ozzie shot horror film. As well, Ledesma will release his film not on DVD or Video-on-demand, but through Bit Torrents, which are notorious for movie piracy.
The film itself follows an investigative journalist into the tunnels under Sydney's St James Train Station where available water is suspiciously left unused. Expecting a government cover-up these two correspondents find something much more deadly instead (The Tunnel). Visit the film's website below for more details on the film's marketing and financing strategies along with a teaser trailer for The Tunnel inside.

The vehicle actually carried gangsters John Dillinger, Hommer Van Meter and John Hamilton to safety after an FBI raid in Little Bohemia, Wisconsin in the 1930s.
Depp played Dillinger in the film.
The car will be the highlight item at the 39th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, which will be held in Scottsdale between 18 and 24 January.
Dillinger reportedly sprayed pursuing cops with his Tommy gun from the vehicle.
"Not only did this particular car get the famous gangster out of a fix with the cops in hot pursuit, it was used in the recent Johnny Depp movie about Dillinger. So it's played an important role in history and cinema emulating history."
The Ford was carefully restored in 2007 to appear in Public Enemies, preserving the original bullet holes and dimples under body filler and carefully documenting the original appearance including the upholstery soaked with blood. »
