The Purchase Brothers are 23 and 25-year-old commercial directors David and Ian Purchase. They’re live in Toronto, and created this short film based around the hit game Half-Life, for under $500.
Originally envisioned as a project to test out post production techniques, as well as a spec commercial, it ballooned into a multi part series.
Filmed guerilla style with no money, no time, no crew, no script, the first two episodes were made from beginning to end on their budget of $500.
Have a look at their spec work on Coke Babies too.
These lads look pretty impressive.
