I think you are all familiar with the video that has been on the internet swirling around for a while. Spotlight is now on Mr Federico Alvarez who made a movie flick that was made almost from thin air in comparison to Hollywood budgets for movies that are really over the top with stupidity and movie effects alike.

Mr. Alvarez had the idea to make a movie about the attack of giant robot aliens on Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. It was similar project to “The Day When The Earth Stood Still”. He based the whole 5 minute movie budget on apparently 300-500$ but the sum that the sources say varies. The fact still stays the same. Federico Alvarez made his own dream come true, by using a simple way to distribute his work freely on YouTube. This way everybody who have seen it spread the word and slowly but surely the word reached producers in Hollywood and his career will soon be rising, better way to say it is skyrocketing after showing his skills in such a low budget but still high quality product.


The movie was so impressive that he got a deal for $30 million and I can say confidently this is not the only movie we will going to see him in as an director and visual effects director. Ghost House Pictures sealed the deal with him for the sum mentioned above to make Federico’s vision possible on a much bigger scale, off course in a much longer movie.

Mostly first time the director gets about $250,000 for the movie but Federico got a few bucks more. With that taking his well deserved place as the best payed first-time director. Just to say it lightly, he is a commercial director in Uruguay and now he is so much more, showing to everyone, that there is hope for every one of us to become famous. We just need patience, dedication, motivation, a little money and the know how to make it happen.

That’s why I must congratulate him the job well done, and wish him to make the movie as good as possible so that we could enjoy another great apocalyptic movie not just in theaters but in our homes, thanks to Extra Torrent and our fine uploaders, who will have it in no time after its release.

For those interested in the video that launched whole Hollywood into a hunt for Federico you can see it in the YouTube Window below:

xyience avatarYeah, the music resembles the music in 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later, and the explosion at the end somehow resembles the attack in Independence Day when the alien fire there main weapons on the top of the building.

The movie is great in about 300-500 $ its so realistic, the director should make a full length film about this.

Z0R4N avatarThe director WILL make a full length movie!!!:oD That's the point xyience!:o)

No avatarActually the average Hollywood movie still only cost $30-$45 million ...or less if it is chick flick or pure social drama even with a couple of big stars.

Its the rare action-adventure (often Sci-Fi as well) packed with big stars and/or big special effects that hits $65, $100, or $130 million...and often that is still partially as a result of overruns in special effects or sets.

No avatarHowever $30 million for a foreign film is HUGE!!!

You see somewhat similar stuff from the top end of Hong Kong with budgets of $10-$12 million. Usually not quite so much CGI and more model building. But there seems to be quite a bit of model building in some places here too.

But the thing to realize is that his original budget was for new equipment and software only -- no labor for actors or CGI work. He probably had a computer and bought a digital camcorder. He might have spent a little on software but most is prolly open source editing...although I understand the basic MAC software is cheap and impressive. Maybe he bought a SECOND HAND Mac with its whole software package!

In any case, he probably put nearly a man-year labor for free into this 5 minutes. Now a real film with a release date less than 3-4 years away will mean all that CGI and editing labor at full rates for the country where he makes the movie. Plus he will almost certainly pay some actors rather than get his relatives and friends to do it for free. Oh he might be able to fill some minor parts with them. But probably not completely for free. And any major roles will need skillful use of professional if not recognizable actors over a considerable length of time.

He will spend his $30 million quite easily.

kottonface avatarThat was pretty cool, hope the full length will be even better. :)

No avatarHe had some good ideas, like the one robot setting up camp in the middle of the city by turning itself into a dome-like building. This was the best idea imo, at that point you start wondering what`s (or who`s) inside and what their intentions are...

Boomer avatarWhen the boy first sees the part of the robot in the smoke across the bridge, that gave me chills!
