    Okay, this is like my previous threads Best Single Shot Ever and Best One Location Movie Ever, as I'm looking for inspiration. I am gearing up to shoot some stars out in record time on one film, so I'm wondering what I can squeeze them onto next. In this thread, can you name some big features made quickly and competently? Example: Robert Rodriguez shot Johnny Depp out in 8 days for Once Upon a Time in Mexico. What else?

    Blue in the Face was shot during or right after SMOKE.

    No, that was at least a 10-day schedule, plus a couple of days for pickups.

    I'd say the most commercially successful short-schedule movie was Little Shop of Horrors (the original 1960 version), famously shot in about 2 days and 1 night.

    I believe 10 day production, 3 days pickups. This isn't a contest, he's just asking for films with short production schedules.

    Found footage style but very successful, although no name actors, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. Shot in 7 days. BLAIR WITCH PROJECT was shot in 8 days.

    we did mike figgis' time code 2000 in 1999 we shot the movie in 120 minutes twice a day for two weeks , and then mike picked the best day and transferred it to film .
    it was the first large studio 24p video feature it was shot with 4 24p cameras that were a sony / panasonic team effort to make .
