Independent film icon, Robert Rodriguez, began his career by creating his first feature film, EL MARIACHI, on a budget of only $7000 with only 14 days to shoot. That creative endeavor began his journey to become one of the premier independent filmmakers of this day. Now, Robert Rodriguez is giving back to the independent film world with his new documentary series, REBEL WITHOUT A CREW: THE SERIES.
Alejandro, along with 4 other filmmakers, were recently selected to be a part of the first season of this new documentary series. With a budget of $7000 and only 14 days, Alejandro was challenged to shoot his own feature length film.
After spending the month of October in Austin, TX, principal photography was completed on MONDAY, the feature film based off Alejandro's critically-acclaimed and award-winning short of the same name.
MONDAY is currently in post-production and is slated to have its premiere at the 2018 South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival.
REBEL WITHOUT A CREW: THE SERIES will air on Verizon Media’s go90 and the Rodriguez-led El Rey Network.
