I don’t want to be the scolding guy, but there’s an error in David Carr‘s 1.17 start-of-Sundance piece in the N.Y. Times. In paragraph #13 he writes that “last year [at Sundance] Once was bought for a song — about $150,000 — and went on to earn $10 million and counting for Fox Searchlight.” As I heard it over and over, Once was made for about $150,000 U.S. and sold for somewhere between $500,000 and $600,000. I got the production budget figure from director John Carney (“a little over 100,000 euros” is how he put it) and exec producer David Collins.
