    About

    "Swamp!", with the lowest budget for a French film (70,000 francs), was an

    audacious move and caused a big impact. In the first place, check out the

    production. The film was shot on video over a period of fourteen days. This

    was well before "The Blair Witch Project." Then the distribution methods.

    It was released the same day as "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" after

    pre-sales of 4000 tickets at 19F90 throughout Tati stores. Finally, in the

    communication area: the media perceived "Swamp!" to be a forerunner of a

    new type of production, more bold, more "wild." The result is a really

    fresh film that has seduced both Canal + and TPS. "Swamp!" is definitely

    the IFO (Unidentified Film Object) of 1999
