Normally for a film to succeed in Hollywood it needs a pretty sizable budget. That’s the generally-accepted Hollywood method of making a film. Gather together a large sum of money to hire A-list stars, create expensive sets, and most importantly, to secure advertising space on every medium possible (television, print, billboards) so they can get audiences to watch the film in theaters. However, with the price of digital camcorders and still cameras that shoot video decreasing with every passing year, as well as the methods of distribution changing, the generally accepted (read: traditional) way of making a film is slowly being replaced. Now, filmmakers have the ability and flexibility to create the movies they want to create, without having to go through the studios and executives who would prefer to make money rather than make art. “For Lovers Only” is one example of this new method of filmmaking. And with the film’s success ($200,000 in profits within the first month of release alone), this method may be something worth looking at.
