Thanks for the kind words and the welcome, guys!
Hi Avery! Nice to see you here! You get around, don't you?
Yes...we definitely were going for the 50s/60s monster-on-a-rampage feel with a bit of 70s exploitation thrown in for good measure (that means lots of blood and lots of boobies!)
Not sure if we're typical, but we managed to make the movie essentially out of pocket for about $5K, although we were able to get ridiculous amounts of volunteers (nobody was paid) and free stuff because of the reputation we've gained from doing the film festival (we just finished our 8th season!). And while we are doing some self-distributing (through our web-site and at our shows), we have just gotten a pretty fair worldwide distribution deal that we are about to accept. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about that!
Thanks again for the feedback!
