There are definitely some talented people out there and with the increasing availability of affordable was to film, make music or even author a book or two we are seeing more and more of these people coming to the foreground. In film especially we are seeing filmmakers creating theater quality short films that in some cases are leading into full feature films.
I wrote about one such filmmaker before by the name of Federico Alvarez who has gone on to sign a $30 million movie deal and now we have Ricardo de Montreuil, a Peruvian filmmaker, who made a short film called The Raven for $5,000. After watching the short I am really hoping that he to will really get some attention and get the chance to create a full length feature based on the short film. I really want to see it.
