So you've been inspired by the Oscar nominations and want to make a movie without going into debt for life.

WalletPop has the experts for you. Todd and Brad Barnes won the Best of Next award for directing the top low-budget film at the recent Sundance Film Festival. The brothers' screwball comedy "Homewrecker" follows a jailbird locksmith on work release who falls for a troublemaking ditz.

"Homewrecker is an example of what two manic brothers with little money and a lot of imagination can produce," said the Hollywood Reporter.
