I unintentionally deleted my original post, so now I’ll just link and comment. Wired reports the story of Jonathan Caouette, an independent filmmaker debuting Tarnation at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. What makes the story incredible is that Caouette made the film for a grand total of US$218.32, using Apple’s easy-to-use editing program, iMovie. Gus Van Sant and Jonathan Cameron Mitchell have expressed interest in the film.
