  • Monsters (2010) - original budget of $1.5k. Nobody except two leads knew they were in a movie. Special effects edited by the same guy who shot it, in the course of 2 years.
  • Cosmos (2019) - original budget of $0. Shot with the borrowed equipment and savvy fellows who knew a thing or two about radioastronomy,
  • Reservoir Dogs - original budget of $15k. You shoot it with a bunch of actor friends in an empty mini-warehouse.

Here's some ideas from the past.

Reservoir Dogs was certainly not 15k

It probably started at 15k. I think the budget went up when keitel signed on

1.2 million was the budget for Reservoir Dogs.

Didnt have a budget for costumes either. Told everyone to wear a black suit to the set. Tarantino was saying on howard stern that weinstein (yes that one) wanted him to cut the torture scene as well

Which makes the budget of the film more than 15k

Monsters was Gareth Edward's. Who went on to Direct Godzilla and Rogue One.
