The Robert Rodriguez Film School is a masterclass in low budget filmmaking. In 60 minutes, Rodriguez shows how he made his new film, RED 11, on a 7K budget, immediately followed by the World Premiere of Red 11.
Red 11 is a horror/thriller set in a dark, twisted version of the Legal Drug Research business. Based on notes written 25 years ago, the film shows the quirks, characters and comedy of Rodriguez’s experiences being a human lab rat, with a sci-fi and horror twist. College kids turned Lab Rats make quick money, and our hero, Rob, is there to pay off his $7,000 debt. But when things go wrong, he isn’t sure if the hospital is trying to kill him or if it’s side effects from the drugs.
