    Shot on 16mm and straight to Netflix. This seems like a good model for the content producer/exhibitor. It really helped it seem more like a genuinely independent film. The only giveaway was the amount of quality music. Unless the costs have gone down recently, I imagine Netflix spent a fair bit on clearances.
