Want to make a feature film? Have little or no money? Then you’re probably out of luck. Unless you’re Flinders University student, Dario Russo. Dario is the genius behind the parody, Italian Spiderman.
What was so genius about Dario’s concept wasn’t that he made a very cheesy little film – all shot in a day. Lots of film-makers do that. In fact some never move beyond that. No, what was the genius was that he only made the trailer which he then uploaded to YouTube in November, 2007.
In a world of pseudo internet anonymity it is possible to register different names for the different sites that you use. So your gmail account can be joebloggs, your facebook JospehMBloggs and your myspace LordThumbleGlorydaBe. This is all great for those worried about tracking and monitoring from the government or other nefarious organisations, but it’s not really useful for those doing business.
