I'm sure plenty of you have seen the amazing "Ataque de Panico!" video from Fede Alvarez by now, but here's how it paid off. His $US300 video landed him a $US30 million contract with Ghost House Pictures.
That [understatement] very lucrative[/understatement]contract is with Sam Raimi's studio. That's right, a $US300 video on YouTube and a boatload of talent can score you a job in Spidey's house. So next time anyone tells you that uploading your filmed-off-the-mirror practice videos for the next Idol audition isn't worth the time or embarrassment, show them this story.
And congrats to Fede. Work this great deserves it. [Yahoo! Movies - Thanks jesuswhammy]
