Gareth Edwards is a movie studio’s dream. He’s had experience on big budget blockbusters in the past, and he was sure there was a better, more frugal way to make an epic film. It all starts with Monsters, his 2010 indie film about a couple trying to escape an alien invasion. Edwards operated with a minimal crew, and operated the camera alone, then created the 250 visual effects by himself at home.
Gareth Edwards shot The Creator with a consumer grade camera and cut back costs on the movie.
