    "The filming equipment cost approximately $15,000, with the budget coming in at "way under" $500,000"
    "For about 90% of the filming the crew comprised seven people transported in one van"

    "Young filmmakers Jared and Jerusha Hess created the 2004 film about the king of awkward Napoleon Dynamite — based on Jared’s previous short film, Peluca. The $400,000-budgeted project could only afford its titular actor for a mere $1,000. The filmmakers shot the movie’s memorable title sequence in the cinematographer’s basement, edited Napoleon Dynamite on a MacBook, and completed production in only 22 days. At the film’s Sundance premiere, a bidding war broke out, Fox won rights (and the worldwide gross of over $46 million that later ensued), and a new era of lovable losers began."

    "First-time feature filmmakers Directors Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez laid the groundwork for their shaky cam classic The Blair Witch Project with a creepy, early viral marketing campaign online. Their eerily true-to-life reports and interviews posted online sparked a theatrical sensation that left audiences wondering if the film they had just watched was really about missing teenagers, or just a piece of well-crafted fiction. The improvised performances added to the unsettling realism and also saved money in the duo’s estimated $25,000 budget. Sánchez and Myrick were aiming for a cable movie at most and after grossing a surprising $248,639,099 million worldwide, they had brought found footage-style films to the mainstream."

    "Shooting the action-packed, apocalyptic cult film Mad Max was a dangerous venture — and not only because the actors risked their lives during the movie’s many stunt and chase sequences. Director George Miller — who made his feature debut with the Australian genre movie — worked with a meager budget considering the movie’s thrilling sequences (many reports indicate around $350,000/$400,000), and the project could have been a bomb. Before Blair Witch came along, Mad Max was the Guinness titleholder for a movie with the highest profit-to-cost ratio of a motion picture (grossing $100 million worldwide). With the film’s final dollars and cents in mind, it seems funny that Miller could only afford real leather clothing for star Mel Gibson. Also, we’d like to think that Miller would have kept the real-life biker gang in the movie had he worked with a bigger budget at the time."
