Dara Says, screenplay and Production Diary

Dara Says book cover

« Dara Says » was Ptara Ltd’s first microbudget film. They originally budgeted the script 120k, but the filmmakers didn’t raise even a tenth of that. In the end, they shot the entire thing in their small terrace house, with less than six k in the bank, yet everyone (other than the director and producer) got paid.

How do you pay everyone without money? How do you make a full-length film without money and without asking people to work for free? Read the microbudget script and follow the story of how it got made.
