How do you create a film that looks like a million dollars (or several) when you only have a micro budget? Sara Elizabeth  welcomes the team behind Honey Head Films as they share how micro budget does NOT have to equal micro quality! How do you rally a team around you, hire top crew at indie rates, stretch the dollar and gain investors’ interests? We answer those questions and share tons of tips, tricks and hacks. If you are producing a feature on a budget, this is not to be missed!
