“I’ll take your word for it.”
also just to add to y'all, as someone who knows a tiny bit about budgeting, what most of the money goes on in any production is PEOPLES SALARIES and SETS. the more staff needed, the more expensive filming. so like, a small budget film would have fewer locations and sets built, and fewer actors. also, TIME. you pay 100 dollars a day to someone? 2 days doubles it. nightshoot raises it. simple as that. to say that the skull was changing because of the budget, is... insane and completely ludicrous.
