Youtube short film to be made into a movie.

Really, that’s THE best short film I have ever seen. Now, the last time a Youtube film was made into a movie, we got Distirct 9. And that was fucking awesome. Copypaste away.

An unknown filmmaker from Uruguay has been given $30m by Hollywood studio bosses – to turn his $500 YouTube video of a giant robot invasion into a movie 

Would-be director Federico Alvarez, who runs a post-production visual effects house in Uruguay, filmed ‘Panic Attack’ with a budget of just $500 in his free time.

The five minute clip – which he then uploaded to YouTube – shows an invasion of Montevideo by giant robots and had special effects which could rival many big budget movies.

Once online it got the attention of thousands of movie fans… and (not surprisingly) studio bosses who wanted to meet with Alvarez to talk about his movie.
