This project looks interesting:
They don't seem to have much of a web presence yet (web page or production blog, google came up empty) but based on the director's live journal, he's been busy finishing of his 2 hour and 40 minute epic. And somehow managed to only spend $800 on it. The shots look moody and dramatic, and there are some good elements in the trailer that I'll be pinching in the future for my own films:
The weakness of amateur films tends to always be the action or fight scenes (hollywood can barely pull it off sometimes) so the jury's out on that one until I actually see the film. But mad hella props to anyone with the balls to make their epic film.. 2h40m crikey! Hopefully it'll see a release on youtube or somewhere.
