Director Casey Neistat Given $25,000 To Make Movie Trailer For 20th Century Fox, But Instead Did This [VIDEO]

Did you know that those movie previews that you dread sitting through at the theater cost tens of thousands of dollars to make on average? For instance, director Casey Neistat was offered $25,000 by 20th Century Fox to produce a movie trailer for ‘The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’, but Casey had a different idea.

He replied that instead of making a video surrounding the concept of following your dreams, as the studio had suggested, he would take the entire budget and put it towards relief for the typhoon victims in the Philippines.

They agreed.

The next time you’re sitting through those previews, just think back to this video and imagine what that budget could have done to make a difference in the world besides making u grumble as you impatiently wait to watch the main feature.
