Things You Can Do When You're Broke: Big Pictures with Small Budgets

I learned about this one through the blog of director Chris Jones who I interviewed for The Indiefest a while back (and whose own short film, Gone Fishing, is mentioned in the forthcoming Broke is Beautiful.)

This film, with a running time of less than five minutes and a budget of less than $300, earned its director a Hollywood contract to make a $30m film. Read more about it by following the link above or on the BBC News site.
