where it all started
From Bloody Disgusting:
Ten years removed from the phenomenon that was THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, we asked [directors] Ed and Dan what they would do differently if they were to make BLAIR now for the first time.
Dan: “I would pay everybody a little bit better, but honestly I don’t think we would’ve or would do anything differently. BLAIR WITCH took the typical shortcomings of low budget filmmaking and turned them into strengths, so I wouldn’t want to undermine those strengths.”
Ed: “I would have ruined it, really. The whole idea of BLAIR WITCH was an idea based on economics. We had little to no money and I think the problem now would be we would have access to money and we just wouldn’t do it the same way. We would fuck it up somehow.”
