Louis C.K. Releases First Feature Film for $5, 1/30

Louis C.K. is releasing his first feature film online for $5. He tweeted: "My first movie "tomorrow night" (1998) will be up on http://louisck.com for 5 bucks as always tomorrow at noon.

Tomorrow Night is a feature-length film I wrote and directed back in 1998. I was a struggling comedian and TV writer at the time and I pulled together my savings and some of my friends money to make this movie on black and white 16mm film. There are some great people in this movie: Steve Carell, JB Smoove, Wanda Sykes and Conan O'Brien are some that you might have heard of.

The cost is $5.00.

About the movie, he says:

I made this movie, meaning I wrote and directed it, back in 1998. I was a struggling comedian and TV writer at the time and I pulled together my savings and some of my friends' money to make this movie on black and white 16mm film. There are some great people in this movie. Steve Carell, JB Smoove, Wanda Sykes and Conan O'Brien are some that you might have heard of. Robert Smigel, Chuck Sklar, Rick Shapiro, Heather Morgan, Nick Diapolo, Martha Greenhouse, Greg Hahn, Carey Prusa and Joseph Dolphin, you may have heard of a little less but they are all terrific. In fact all these people are comedians and actors I had been working with and around back in the 90s and I wrote all of their parts for them specifically. To me, that's what this movie was for, to create performance opportunities for all my favorite funny people. And to photograph them with prime lenses on Black and White reversal film.
