During the Cannes Film Market, I recorded an audio podcast with Derrin Rammage from Maxim Media, an Arizona based sales company that specialises in ultra low budget horror films – and when I mean ultra low budget, I mean it, kind of around $20k! He always has a huge catalogue of titles that to my eye, veer from the ridiculous, through to extremely accomplished for the resources at hand.
I recorded the podcast as he is a ‘real’ sales agent who can sell a horror movie made for £10k. The question is, do you have 8 mates, a camera, a cabin and £10k? If you do, maybe you have a m,ovie too!?
You can listen to the podcast below…
Or download it here.
During the podcast, Derrin refers to one title called ‘Death Of A Ghost Hunter’ and you can watch that trailer on YouTube here.
Derrin really is a colourful character and his films sometimes defy belief, but I see him in the Palais every Cannes Film Market, and it can’t be cheap to attend the market and run a booth for a week, so he must be doing some thing right!
Onwards and upwards!
