The US$60, 000 Movie That Made US$248.6 Million from Cinemas
Yes. It is only in the entertainment industry that your fantasy becomes a reality.
You make a movie with N60 million and you make N450 million within three months (The Wedding Party, Nollywood romantic comedy in 2016/2017).
You spent US$15 million to make a movie and within a year, you made US$377.9 million (Slumdog Millionaire, British drama in 2008/2009). But the most phenomenal of all is The Blair Witch Project, the 1999 American psychological horror film written, directed and edited by Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez. They made the film with only US$60,000 and made UD$248.6 million!
Can you beat that?
