A Good Low Budget Film
2 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was the executive producer of this film, and I did some of the producing as well. Thus, I know most of the facts of how it was made.

First, it was shot on film, since super video was not yet available to us.

Second, Julie Strain did indeed get the chance to act, in addition to showing off her beautiful body. She did a good job, and I still appreciate her pleasant personality and her cooperative attitude.

Third, the film was shot entirely on location. There were no studio shots at all. The apartment used by the main character for his rendezvous with Julie was an actual apartment in a local apartment complex. The shootout between cops and crooks was shot in a large building on the local fairgrounds. The police detectives office was in the actual police detectives building in downtown Denton. The morgue scene was filmed in an actual morgue room in a local hospital. The final shootout in the hospital was shot in that same hospital. That part of the hospital was closed because new hospitals were opening in the area.

Fourth, we used a firearms expert for those shots involving actual guns, and safety rules were strictly followed.

Fifth, much of the behind the scenes work was done by volunteers from the RTVF department of the University of North Texas.

Sixth, the actual cost of the film was about $200,000, not $500,000. It only recouped about half of that cost.

Seventh, much of the cast did a decent job of acting, especially considering the low budget nature of the film. Joe Estevez was quite good, and his over-the-top scenes were intentional, especially the ones involving members of his movie family.

Last, although I lost money on this film, I enjoyed the experience a great deal. I learned a lot about making films. That knowledge has helped me in my research into the history of Hollywood films.
