Creating a movie is a big task. Even with HD cameras and high quality sound equipment more accessible and affordable than ever before, it's a huge commitment to make an independent film. In most cases, you need a story, you need actors, you need locations and props, you could use an original song or two, and maybe even special effects. Then you have to coordinate all of the cast and crew, who are usually volunteers working in their spare time. But independent filmmakers somehow manage to navigate all these hurdles to get their visions on the big screen (or YouTube). With Halloween approaching, we thought we'd highlight a few independent horror movies that were shot in our state.
