James Nguyun wanted to make a film. He didn’t have a lot of money. He didn’t have good actors. He didn’t have a good script. He made a film anyway. The film is bad. The filmmaking is incompetent. The special effects are absolutely abysmal. The plot is nonsensical. This should never have seen the light of day. People laugh at it. The film is seen as a joke. But somewhere down the line Birdemic gained a following and a reputation. For reasons good and bad it is a film you will never forget. James Nguyen made a film and six years later people like me are still talking about it. Even at one-star quality, the resilience of the filmmaking shines through. Maybe you can make a film too.
