n. Low-budget filmmaking that usually features a skeleton crew, no location permits, street scenes shot on-the-fly, simple props and clothing, and nonprofessional actors.
Many location scenes were shot by the actors with hidden cameras — bystanders gave written permission to appear in the film after scenes were completed and they were told what was happening. It's guerrilla filmmaking on a level far beyond The Blair Witch Project.
"Bowfinger" is more about guerrilla filmmaking, about what a director will do to get his name on the big screen, even if it means skimping and cutting corners.
One novice Raedon director shot a movie in eight days, an experience he termed "guerrilla filmmaking."
