If you've ever wanted to become a filmmaker but can't get round the fact that it costs thousands of pounds to make a movie, then take a look at Kevin Smith's Clerks and you might just start feeling better about your situation. Shot in black and white at the convenience store where Smith worked (filmed in the evenings, which is why the shutters are always down), it was financed by maxing out a handful of credit cards. And yes, it looks awful, but it's such a funny script – an acerbic look at the over-the-counter culture of the early 90s – it hardly matters. Clerks became the foundation of Kevin Smith's career and remains wickedly funny proof that anyone can be a director.
