Brad Rosier is clearly insane.
There are certain ‘rules’ about micro budget films that you will hear repeated by every ‘authority’ on the subject. They are
- Limit number of locations
- Limit number of characters
- Don’t do ‘period pieces’
- Limit special effects (VFX)
But, as ‘Currency’ writer/producer/director/editor Rosier points out, there is in fact only 1 rule
Make a good film.
‘Currency’ is Rosier’s first feature. I guess he finished it in 2012 and had some good success – winning 9 awards. (Note to Brad: please put more info on your website!!!) and now – mid December 2014 – the film is available on Amazon and iTunes. I’m trying to find out more about this film because I think it is inspiring and also a good example of how long things can take. Unfortunately
There’s a short interview with him here:
And an press release about the releasing of the film onto these two significant platforms here.
