Featurette: The Making of Redlight
This one screened at a number of festivals in 2006. It’s meant to be experienced on DVD as a “special feature,” but you’ll get the idea. Visit the IMDB page for full cast and crew detail.
Contest-winning aspiring filmmakers were given a modest budget to make their first film in exchange for being documented by a video crew who would turn the heightened on-set drama/hilarity into a reality-TV show. With production on their film Redlight failing due to mismanagement of funds and lack of talent, these so-called filmmakers go to great lengths to disguise their shortcomings from the documentarians, whose featurette is the only salvageable material for the studio.
Thanks to Ed Costin and Charles Stonewall for these candid backstage shots.
