Two years ago, Alex Ferrari wrote and directed a short action/thriller film called Broken. It cost a mere $8,000, looks like a million bucks, and includes more than 100 visual effects shots.
The film was a “proof of concept” — Ferrari and his associates and investors wanted to demonstrate what they are capable of producing if given a larger budget and greater resources.
I was skeptical of the short – until I watched it. It’s pretty cool, especially considering its limitations. It’s stylish and energetic and will leave you wanting more.
