Shooting on film doesn't make your movie any better....
8 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I'm not sure what the budget for this film was, but they would have saved a ton of money if they shot this on video. I don't care what anyone says, a bad script is a bad script whether its on 35mm or HDV. The trick is to own up to it before you blow thousands of dollars on an end result that got 12 one star reviews on this site. That's just sad.

And I'm sure someone from the crew or some fan is gonna argue how film makes everything better. But truth be told, it doesn't. A turd is still a turd no matter how much you polish it. If this were my movie and I was heart set of keeping the script the same, I would have done it on HDV this way my investors would save a bucks.

I wish the producers all the luck in the world on their next venture. Hopefully they learned something about movie making from this experiment.
