They still seem like huge budgets to me

Alan sent me this link to an article where music video directors talk about their work. There’s a bit of moaning about how budgets are now down to the low hundreds of thousands of dollars rather than $million, and a lame “It’s all the fault of downloaders” argument, but I don’t have any sympathy for them.

Seriously, give me ten grand and I could make a great music video- give me �50k and I could probably do that film I’ve been threatening for years. They’d be obviously lo-fi but far superior to things costing tens of times as much.
