Redheaded Vengeance: The Life and Death of Pigtails

Made in Central Ohio without:

money, film school degrees, acting lessons, showbiz connections, expensive equipment, filming permits, friends or family with wikipedia pages, a script

Made with:

Sweat, guts, VHS tapes, and corn syrup mixed with red food coloring

Ya can't get more indie than that folks


Redheaded Vengeance was shot sporadically between 1996 and 1999 (in and around Columbus, Ohio).

The original goal was a feature length film, shot entirely on VHS, for basically no money (beyond the cost of videotapes and gasoline).

Much more footage exists than what's seen in this short.
