Allow me to introduce you to the next big thing. His name is Alex Ferrari & BROKEN is the film.
Allow me to introduce you to the next big thing. His name is Alex Ferrari and his indie movie is called BROKEN. A gun blast, a flash of light, and a young woman awakens to the comfort of her own bed. Bonnie Clayton has it all, a great relationship, a challenging career, and the burden of a dream that grows more vivid and disturbing with each passing night. But when Bonnie is abducted by a sadistic stranger and his colorful entourage, she discovers that the key to her survival lies within the familiar realms of her recurring dream.
Broken is an example that just re-affirms the fact that indie does not mean bad. You can make a good movie regardless of budget if you don't compromise and set out to make a good film. I know that talk is cheap so I took some stills that I want to share with you so lets start with those. This $8,000 dollar film looks as good as Sin City.
The load menus put to shame every single movie I have got in the last month. This includes the big budgets I bought for $30.00. The fully animated menus are slick ass. The creative credits also impressed. Had to keep reminding myself this was a true indie film.
Then we get into the actual look of the film. Although it looks good the team that made this film did not just recycle the same look over and over. They used plenty of creative looks and shots to give you a really creative and fun film.
This movie was well shot, and for the most part the acting was good. It is a short film though and the problem with shorts is their really is no good story development or overall film direction / movement. Despite this I am giving BROKEN a 9/10. The second highest rating I have ever given any film. Indie or otherwise. When you consider the fact the budget was so small these guys have taken indie to an all new level .They have single handedly taken indie to the next level showing that great film makers can work with any budget. I can see these guys doing a huge summer block buster on a peanuts budget and making a studio a lot of money, as well as pleasing the audience.
Robert Rodriguez influence is obvious, and they have a very gritty and developed look to all the scenes. I think they have not copied him but done true homage to him by doing an indie that is smoking and pays obvious tribute without copying.
