    I've been really impressed by the films this fest. A lot of hard work and effort has gone into making these, and it got me thinking. I know it's easy to think all it takes is some time and a few friends, but I'm curious to know how much it really costs to make a solid entry.

    Did anybody hire actors, composers, etc? Rent equipment? Pay for permits or insurance? Build and/or dress a set? Gas and food costs worth mentioning? What else?

    I've never been on a production like one of these, and I'd like to get a better grasp on what to watch out for, so tips on how to avoid certain costs would be great too.

    I spent $0 and a few hours. But then again all I did was watch the films, not make one ;-)

    Zak - how'd you feed five people for $40? I ask cause I have two shoot dates coming up and I'm stressing on coming up with food. Course I need four meals for a lot more than 5 ... but still, any ideas may help
