2. His Ability To Work Wonders With Low Budgets…
Marshall has made every movie so far for practically nothing - in comparison to Hollywood-level budgets.
And yet he always makes them look much more than they cost. It’s a major, mind-concentrating challenge for directors to work under such conditions – and it usually makes them better.
“With Dog Soldiers and Descent I had a 2-3 million dollar budget, and I wanted to make a movie that looked 10 million dollars", says Marshall.
"With Doomsday I had a 28 million dollar budget and I wanted to make a movie that looked like 50-60 million dollars. I always want to get as much as humanly possible out of that money, so that does require an awful lot of creativity and hard work regardless of the scale or budget.”
