A video on YouTube, Panic Attack!, that cost $300 to make has led to a $300 million contract from Sam Raimi’s Ghost House production company.
Fede Alvarez’s short film “Ataque de Panico!” (Panic Attack!) features giant robots invading and destroying Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. It runs a whopping 4 minutes and 48 seconds and is very good looking for the cost.
Wish Mr. Alvarez the best of luck and congrats. It’ll be nice to see some “outsiders” take on the Hollywood machine.
