Indie Filmmaking Tips & Tricks 3: Cheap Fixes

Indie Filmmaking Tips & Tricks 3: Cheap Fixes from Ryan Gielen on Vimeo.

Indie filmmaking tips and tricks from the set of The Graduates. (dir Ryan Gielen) Cheap fixes: duct tape, food coloring, sand bags... You use what you have.

Mix them all up and boom: we have a closet door with slits big enough for our pervert character to stare through. Check it out.
