Camp Death 3 in 2D— Why You Should Support Indie Filmmakers
What is Independent Film?
If you're a lover of movies you'll have heard the terms 'indie' and 'blockbuster' thrown around from time to time. Over the years, some independent filmmakers have produced some spectacular films. Films so great and so popular you wouldn't even know they were made on the sniff of an oily rag rather than millions of dollars.
For me, the film that pops into my mind when I want to use an example of a film that went viral, or became entrenched in cult popularity, its The Blair Witch Project (1999.) This film was made with only $60 000 and remains a film still talked about today. This film was not produced by a major studio and is often argued about because of the quality of the end result. It's not polished or well filmed and the actors cast in it are not famous or recognised.
Why Should You Support Indie Films?
This is what independent film making is all about. Without the little guys getting in there and pouring their blood sweat and tears into projects that many times don't turn a profit, we wouldn't have some of the renowned classic indie films we know and love today. I'll list some more later in this article.
This is why I watch indie films and why, even if they are not my cup of tea story-wise or genre-wise I'll still promote them and talk about them. Because who knows, maybe one day, the little guy who made a micro-budget film might turn into a profitable franchise and help other little guys.
A New Indie Film for You to Watch— Death Camp III in 2D
Indie film makers have to work harder than the big conglomerates like Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox. Those company's spend millions and millions of dollars to make the films that rake in billions of bucks. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has the biggest budget record at the moment costing an estimated $379 million to make.
This year a director by the name of Matt Frame made a tiny micro-budget film with just $35 000. So for Frame Forty Films (the company that produced and distributed the film) has been screened at over 14 film festivals. It's won 4 awards for things like 'Best Kill' and 'Best Horror-Comedy Feature' and finally the hard work has paid off. Camp Death III in 2D will be available on Amazon Prime from February 15th 2019. A great achievement for anyone who makes movies.

What is Camp Death III in 2D About?
The film centres in Camp Crystal Meph. The camp has reopened after some previous misfortune but the curse of killer Johann Van Damme remains.
Camp 'Death' is now a rehab center for mentally ill adults and as the newest busload of misfits arrive, something evil begins to kill off the residents and staff. Is it Johann awoken from his shallow grave or could this newest murder spree be a copycat?

Every genre and theme has an audience that loves it and you just might find something new you didn't know you could enjoy.
