Moviesauce started because we wanted to make movies, but lived in an area about as far a way from film production as you can get (North Louisiana). We've thrived on an ability to work with what we have, use the people we know, and generally operate as underdogs within an industry that does things very differently.
These films are all made with volunteer casts and crew, many first timers and/or non-professionals. Several of us are still part of that original group of friends that have been making stuff together since high school. We paid for these out of our own pockets, and produced them about as far from the coastal production hubs as you can get in the continental United States. And they're all available to watch online for free.
