In honor of Pi Day
we’re highlighting Black Swan
director, Darren Aronofsky’s,
groundbreaking sci-fi thriller, Pi
. The film is an inspiration for aspiring filmmakers living on a budget – which is pretty much all of us. Aronofsky was able to showcase his original vision on a measly $60,000 budget, shooting on black and white reversal film. The same film stock film students
around the world use. No more excuses.
Aronofsky proactively set forth on his ambitious film, instead of cynical complaints about a lack of money, connections, and 35mm stock. His efforts catapulted his career as a renowned filmmaker. Pi proves that storytelling trumps everything else. Today Pi has netted over $3 million dollars and put Aronofsky in the driver’s seat of his successful filmmaking career.
