Panic Attack 2009!

If you've read some of my past posts, you know that I enjoy reading other blogs with either an RPG or tech flare. As such, I get daily updates from the Geeks Are Sexy blog which always has some deliciously wonderful update, and today was no exception.

From the Uruguayan producer Fede Alvarez comes this neat 5 minute short called Ataque de Panico (Panic Attack) 2009.

An interesting tidbit of information is that Fede Alvarez only spent about $300 USD to shoot the entire 5 minute short, and because of this great work, according to Collider, Alvarez has signed a deal with Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures. Collider continues to say that Alvarez's deal "is reportedly in the six- against seven figure range (meaning that he’s being paid $X00,00 and if the film gets made he gets a bonus amount which would bring his salary to $X,000,000)."

That's really impressive and I hope that film and more get made. I look forward to seeing more from Fede Alvarez as his work is just remarkable! To read more about how he made Panic Attack, check out Alvarez's comments here!
