This chapter details the making of The Blair Witch Project (1999). The stories that surround the production of The Blair Witch Project are as fascinating as the final product. The circumstances of the film's low-budget production are legendary with stories of the cast being filled with real fear by the ‘method’ directing techniques of the two directors. From developing the script and financing the film to the extensive post-production period and taking the finished product to the Sundance Film Festival, the entire process is an inspiring example of inventive independent filmmaking. Ultimately, The Blair Witch Project is a film that could not have been made without advancements in camera technology beyond the early days of cinema.
