Can you really create a feature film for £5,000?!
Well, yes, according to writer/ actor/ director Tim Barrow who directed The Inheritance - a film about two brothers taking a road trip to discover the inheritance their late father left them.
It won the Raindance Award at the British Independent Film Awards and was nominated for two Bafta Scotland New Talent Awards!
So how did Tim Barrow manage such a feat on a shoestring of a budget? “It being Edinburugh, we could put a lot of people up with friends or at local guest houses, which kept the costs down a bit. And there was begging and borrowing from friends and family and just seeing who was interested in helping support the film”, says Tim.
As a result of the success of this venture, he has now produced his second feature film, The Space Between for £15,000!
If Tim Barrow can harness the power of the crowd to support a single idea, and produce extremely high quality work from a minute budget, why can’t you?
