Where to Find Micro-Budget Films
John_Burton posted a topic in DirectingDoes anybody know where I can find a list of micro-budget (under $100K US) feature films that are streaming somewhere online? Preferably recent films--last five years, if I can find them. I'm producing and directing a film along those lines and want to research the competition, but can't figure out how to find these movies. Everything I've tried Googling just yields a list of breakout indies or classic zero-budget indies I've already seen. Where are the sorta-good, sorta-shitty movies that don't suck but didn't necessarily break out? Thanks!!

Advice on lenses for indie documentary
Yurena A De Dios posted a topic in Lenses & Lens AccessoriesHi, I've been assigned to shoot and direct and documentary in Nepal in two months time and I'm looking to gear up for the shoot. The project is a low budget / indie documentary for which I thought to get the Sony A7s ii for the job for its low light conditions as most likely I'd use very little available lights. I own a Blackmagic 4K ef mount which I plan to sell as I find it to bulky and heavy for the job and not great on low light. I am currently looking for lenses, and understanding more about the different type of glass. I'm looking for recommendations I want to achieve a filmic / cinematic look, nice aesthetics, soft nice skin tone and color rendition rather than sharp HD video and I have a very little budget to cover the whole rig. I even thought of old film slr lenses to give me a softer look but I am scared of vignetting of which would be best to go for. The documentary will be 30 mins highly visual, poetic biopic rather than talking heads, so any help on the choice of lense would be great . I currently own Nikon prime DX 50, 85 mm 1.4 lenses but don't think they're good enough or if it'd vignet. I'm not super technical so any advice on this would really help, many thanks.
