Concerning his decision to make the movie with no budget, Mr. Rothman says, “With the advent of the digital filmmaking revolution came the possibility of producing a movie with a null budget. I couldn’t let this opportunity to experiment pass, so I eagerly began researching film and video production with every spare second of my time. This grew into my first goal: to produce a movie with whatever resources I could obtain and to learn as much as possible in the process.”

Mr. Rothman supports traditional cinema and believes in the importance of exploring new possibilities, especially for aspiring filmmakers, “I believe that everyone has the ability to tell at least one good story and I wanted the world to see the power of the Internet Community as a distribution source for amateur filmmakers. I released “Boy Who Never Slept” as an ‘open source’ movie to encourage new filmmakers, and to reach the largest possible audience on a budget absolutely anyone could afford.”
