Wired charts the rise of digital video at Sundance:

You haven’t heard of the vampire film Moonshine yet, but you will. The film premieres at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, which starts Thursday in Park City, Utah, and it has a back story to make every aspiring filmmaker green with envy.

Roger Ingraham, the film’s director, dropped out of high school, wrote a script and, at age 19, shot Moonshine using several dozen volunteer actors and crew. Total price: $9,200, including the cost of a Panasonic camera, a PowerBook G4 and website hosting.

An agent from the William Morris Agency saw a trailer for Moonshine while surfing the net, and helped usher the film into Sundance.
