Robot Invasion on Shoestring Budget - Fede Alvarez's "Ataque de Panico"
Something amazing has happened in Uruguay. Producer, Fede Alvarez, created a goose bump inducing short about giant robots and streams of spacecrafts invading the capital of Montevideo. Alvarez created the four-minute short, "Ataque de Panico" (Panic Attack) on a mere 300 USD budget. This little investment wielded him an increase by 100,000 fold when Ghost House Pictures (The Grudge, Boogeyman, Legend of the Seeker....) offered him a 30 million deal to create a feature film in the same vein as his short. Watch his initial endeavor below.
