Impressive Stuff From The Purchase Brothers

The Purchase Brothers are 23 and 25-year-old commercial directors David and Ian Purchase. They’re live in Toronto, and created this short film based around the hit game Half-Life, for under $500.

Originally envisioned as a project to test out post production techniques, as well as a spec commercial, it ballooned into a multi part series.

Filmed guerilla style with no money, no time, no crew, no script, the first two episodes were made from beginning to end on their budget of $500.

Have a look at their spec work on Coke Babies too.

These lads look pretty impressive.

  1. Great find. Have always been a fan of very lost cost but great productions like Clerks, Blair Witch, and El Mariachi. Commercials are be a good way for them to build a portfolio.
