In about two months, a YouTube video from Uruguay got over 5 million views.
And a $30 million contract for producer Fede Alvarez.
Panic Attack! (Ataque de Pánico!) only cost $300 to make (as CNN points out, not counting time and equipment).
According to the BBC, the project be directed by Sam Raimi (Spiderman):
The movie Mr. Alvarez has been asked to produce is a sci-fi film to be shot in Uruguay and Argentina. He says he intends to start from scratch and develop a new story for the project.
"If some director from some country can achieve this just uploading a video to YouTube, it obviously means that anyone could do it," he added.
