We made Panopticon over a year on weekends and spare change. It was, in retrospect, an audacious undertaking, with a dozen locations, a hundred scenes and multiple montages–all of which are the bane of no-budget film-making. So we learned a lot, despite ourselves. We are proud of our accomplishment, which took time, energy, talent, tenacity–even a little money. We are grateful to all those who put their time and skills at our disposal.
