create a short movie, lets say about no more than 45 minutes in length and had a limited amount of funds, say about 5000 US dollars (sorry, i am not good at figuring out about other countries monies), then what would it be about and how would you go about making it. this is purely for fun but treat it like it was real and you had 30 days to do it in. for me it would be a sci fi (of course) murder mystery\thriller. i have always been intriqued by a futuristic sherlock holmes. what is not live shot with a good digital cam , providing i could find someone with a good english accent, the rest would be done with digital software to create landscapes, cityscapes, space shots, etc. what models that could be built would be very small scale to cut on cost and shot with a homemade steady cam setup. found some info on that a while back on how to make one.
