Thanks for this post Good...I am not a filmmaker but I really love the freedom of limitations and this little video is a great example. It was made by Richard Rodriguez to explain how he made "El Mariachi" for $7000.00. I really like that he has so much fun making the movie and that he encourages film makers to come up with creative solutions to a filmmaking/prop/etc challenge and not to forget to have fun. I guess there is also efficiency to doing everything yourself. It is in three parts. Enjoy.
