    We are living in an age now where filmakers with very limited budgets can create great material to be released online.A lot of short action films being released can give top hollywood productions a run for their money ( or surpass them ).

    What are your favourites and post them here.I cant yet as im a new user and for some reason the board doesnt let us post these yet.

    Con you give us an example? Do you mean a 60s short, or a 20 minute short, or an 80 minute short independent movie?

    All kinds.Im a newbie here so I can’t post links here yet but there is a great short film called BOND on YouTube that is about 4 and a half minutes long and has a great fight scene and car chase.

    There are short action films out there that are shot with just an IPhone!

    El Mariachi

    Main costs were camera film, processing it and Video Transfer. Which would cost zero if you used a good camera phone.

    So $7,225.00 but in reality under $500

    Other than that costs were
    Equipment bulbs and lamps $127.00 - probably zero today thanks to LED's and camera phones that work in low light

    Miscellaneous $622.00 - but take away the following film and tapes
    4 rolls 35mm Production Still Film............................................$18.00
    10 Maxell 11 Audio Cassettes..................................................$23.00
    6 197 Ampex 3/4" BLA 60s....................................................$103.00

    Great movie and the americanised sequel/remake with Antonio Banderas was even better but i would class that as a full length feature.

    There are some action shorts that are only a few mins long that are insanely good ( Seriously why do i have to wait before i get to post youtube links? )

    Cliffhanger ?

    That was a huge budget Stallone movie back in the 90s.We are talking low to no budget short films here.
