The new face of Independent Filmmaking1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
Amidst the massive advertisements for Scott Pilgrim and RED was a building-sized image for Skyline – a movie that no one had ever heard of before.
The film was an independent feature built under the radar and far under the normal budget of a film of its kind.
Greg and Colin Strause have made an alien invasion movie with over 1,000 effects shots, and they’ve done it without the help (or hindrance) of a studio.
“It was getting the creative freedom that was really interesting. When we worked with [those] artists, they let us do our thing. When you’re working on a studio movie, there’s so many cooks in the kitchen,” said Strause.
