Talk about no-budget filmmaking! In this handy video tutorial, David F. Sandberg shows how he shot his short horror film “Not So Fast” using a trash can from IKEA and other household items.
“I wanted it to look like Lotte was in a sea of darkness,” Sandberg explains. He created a rig using an IKEA trashcan that he punched a hole in and an IKEA light socket. To concentrate the light, he taped foil inside and added a compact fluorescent that he bought from ebay. Why didn’t we think of that?
Sandberg breaks down his process in the below video and you can see the final film (A Vimeo Staff Pick) here.
