Why would you want to write about us?

  • The typical Hollywood film costs, “…200million to make and another 50m to 100m to market” (Source: “Split Screens”, The Economist 2/23/13) while the typical StarLite Film costs less than $50,000
  • StarLite Films are made by real independent filmmakers and are typically self-financed
  • The rise of DSLR filmmaking has allowed independent filmmakers  the opportunity to create films that can be difficult to distinguish from mainstream films – special effects not included
  • Truly independent filmmakers are crazy people that need support and encouragement to continue making films!
