Adam Torel Interview, Part 2: Third Window Films CEO Gets Candid on Japanese Movie Production and One Cut of the Dead’s International Success (OTAQUEST)

Without being held back by the production committee, they were free to experiment on set in a way previous film committee movies hadn’t necessarily allowed. ‘With zero-budget independent films you actually have more freedom to be creative. For example, we had an on-set idea like ‘oh, since this is a movie about making movies, we should make parody posters of films that are about lowlives such as Mean Streets, Eyes Wide Shut, and The Godfather’,’ recalled Torel. ‘So I got the actors on set and I showed them a photo of the Godfather poster, and we took a photo like that and used that to promote the film.’
