Hello there. My name’s Ryan, and I watch way too many movies. I also write and direct movies; you can check out my stuff at http://www.sb-films.com if you’d like, or my listing on IMDB is http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2038084/.
While I enjoy movies of all types, the fact that I am a low-budget filmmaker has created a special place in my heart for films of the low and no-budget variety. What do I mean by low/no budget? Less than 5 digits in the budget. The amount of money most “real” movies spend on craft services. With the right planning, preparation, talent, and skills, a great movie can be made for less than $100,000. As a matter of fact, a great movie can be made for less than $1,000. It all comes down to how good the script is, and how well it was executed.
As someone that has worked on various low/no budget films (my feature, Defective Man!, was made in the “4 digit” budget range) I know how hard it can be to get someone to watch and review a microbudgeted feature. I am here to watch and review those movies.
This blog was on MySpace for years, but who still frequents that post-apocalyptic wasteland of teenagers and gangstas? Well, a few people I guess, jut not me. I have decided to re-start Ryan’s Reviews here on WordPress (lownobudgetreviews.wordpress.com) so that anyone can access the site, not just those people still on MySpace. I will be re-posting the old reviews, and am open to new reviews.
If you made a movie that sounds like it would be a good fit for this blog, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org subject: review my movie. Tell me a little bit about your movie, and we can discuss getting it reviewed here. I am open to all genres of film – as long as the budget fits – but am particularly drawn to horror and comedy.
It’s time to get this party started. I hope you enjoy the reviews, and if you are a filmmaker, I hope to hear from you!
