There was once a time where film technology was only available to those who received funding from the movie producers, and those who didn’t just were not able to make films. As technology has progressed and, in doing so, gotten cheaper, the means of film production has followed suit. Nowadays anyone with a camera can film and use their computer to edit, and realize their film making dreams online. A trend that is beginning to emerge is using this readily available technology to make feature length films, as the South Korean film maker Min Byung-wu did with his film “Cats and Dogs” (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/south-korean-feature-film-shot-660708). In doing this, and this film attaining a theatrical release, he has opened the doors to an entirely unexplored avenue of film production, and potentially allowing for those without the big budget to produce their cinematic visions as well.
