Film shot on Canon 7D bought by Paramount for $4 million

News has it that 27 year old, Drake Doremus, director for the film Like Crazy, has sold his movie rights to Paramount Pictures for $4 million.

Great job Drake! The film is a debut young starlets Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones. They are a couple in a long distance relationship. The plot involves modern storylines of student visas, immigration policies, and U.S. deportation. (For folks actually experiencing this in real life: look up K1 fiance visa)

So what does this say to the DSLR filmmaking industry? Low budget DSLR equipment can deliver the money.
