"Then about a month before production, we lost funding due to some very flaky investors. Surprisingly, pretty much everyone still agreed to make it happen. The biggest challenge I faced was pulling it off without the gear & crew I had planned on. For example, we were budgeted to shoot it on the Red Epic, but when we lost everything, my only option was a [Canon 5D Mark II]. So, Honeyspider is literally as run and gun, indie guerrilla filmmaking as you could possibly imagine. I was the DP, Director, Executive Producer & Sound Tech. In hindsight, it was an absolute circus and disaster, but somehow it worked." ~Josh Hasty (Filmmaker)
