Alex Poutiainen is the filmmaking poster boy for the recession. For a mere $24 and six days of shooting he made a seven-minute, stop-motion zombie short called Zoo of the Dead. Twenty-four bucks! I've spent that much on popcorn at a movie. At that price he could make a full-length feature for $300. You couldn't film one second of the recently leaked X-Men Origins: Wolverine with that kind of budget.
Admittedly, it doesn't have the quirkiness of his previous work, Rise and Fall of Nazi Dinosaurs and the camera work started to make me nauseous, I can't wait to see what he does next.
