Often films made this way struggle to get more than 1 or 2 million budgets and consider a success to break even, with DVD after-sales included. US independent film maker Orin Peli made Paranormal Activity for just $15,000. But he needed Paramount, a US major studio to distribute his film. In doing so he made over $190 milllion.
