Eric Harrison, Eric Wilkinson, Three Hundred Thousand Dollars discussed on The Director's Cut


What i finally landed on was the idea of trying to get a tv series and of doing the tv pilot um and we tried raising money for that but we couldn't raise money for independent tv pilot so that's one had the idea of going back to what i grew up on which was you know like when you see the hulk or the sixmilliondollar man or kung fu it'd be this ninety minute movie that you'd see on tv and then they make a series out of it like months later the be a serious insult cool they turned that movie new series i mean i in retrospect against those were pilots but they were featurelength pilots so we thought will make basically a featurelength pilot and presented to the world as a movie but then try to set it up as a tv series that's how we made thank you again okay well uh obviously this one is i mean they sume a lot of people here seem we're by the way is eric harrison irks here there's the producers and cowriter eric wilkinson and all around great guy this one is far more uh logistically expansive and uh obviously required a lot more of production value have had a lot more production value the first one was shot a essentially in one room in one cabin and it's it's obvious how you can keno keep costs down although one hundred ten thousand dollars is is really i shot a movie in twelve days on one location and it costs three hundred thousand dollars so did it for one hundred is like astonishing to me but this one is m is far more expensive and uh you know just just wh wh i wanna ask you what the budget is i mean you were generous enough to tell us where the budget the first when his but what how did you deal with the far greater and more ambitious production in this sequel while just tell you i don't care was shot the movie in twelve days of for just under three hundred thousand dollars.
