Actress Kate Bosworth has just tested the bottom end of the indie movie market after filming in Italy on a $150,000 (£93,750) budget.
The Superman Returns star did her own hair and make-up and carried her wardrobe around in a suitcase on the set of the untitled Kat Coiro film.
She says, "It was super, super low-budget and we went with about six people... and gunned it.
"I really was changing in the most hideous bathrooms in Naples... It was an experience unto itself."
And, to add further drama to the project, director Coiro was seven months pregnant at the time.
Bosworth adds, "It was crazy."
