Tight budgets force lots of indie filmmakers to experiment with new technologies. Weiler has been more persistent than most. The Last Broadcast, released in 1998, was shot with video cameras, processed on PCs so it looked more like film, and shown on a digital projector—one of the first time ticket-buyers saw a digital screening. Lately, Weiler has been showing his movies at flashmob-organized underground drive-in screenings, and building alternate reality games around his latest release, Head Trauma.
