The debuted writer shares his experience as:

“You need to be realistic when writing the script and choosing what sort of story you are going to be filming. It’s all well and good if you want to film a war epic, but it’s likely going to be nearly impossible to raise the budget for it. Creditors was a natural fit from the start as it’s essentially a chamber piece. You could, when all is said and done, point a camera at some good actors, and come out the other end with a film. Obviously, we didn’t simply do that, but you can at least ballpark the budget somewhere realistic if you start early.”
