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: The Life and Death of Pigtails was shot on VHS between 1996-1999 in Columbus, Ohio, and surrounding areas. 

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.
