Budget [draft]

My originally was going to be around £5-£10 maximum however after researching props i realised that a more realistic budget would be £20.
The following is what i needed for the production of my film;

  • 2ft doll - This cost £20 from Argos
  • Kitchen knife - Free from my friends kitchen
  • Hair/clothes/makeup - All were actors and actresses own and were therefore free
  • Camera Tapes - £4 from school
  • Blank C.D's to burn my film onto - (4x30p) £1.20
  • Red food colouring - £1.15 from Tesco

Low budget slasher films still normally have a significantly higher budget than mine; Donkey Punch, Oliver Blackburn (2008) was filmed in just three weeks and had a budget of £500,000.
Other low budget slasher films include;
My Bloody Valentine, George Mihalka (1981) which had a budget of £1.5 million.
Black Christmas, Bob Clark (1974) whose budget was just £420,000.
