Join William Fay, executive producer of films including 300, The Patriot, Independence Day, and Superman Returns, as he speaks about how he and his crew created the blockbuster epic that is 300--how they founded it upon traits such as "Duty" and "Honor," and how the "Glory" of the Epic Story naturally followed. 300 had no major stars. The film was shot entirely indoors, leveraging cutting-edge technological innovations. It cost $65 million--a fraction of what a major epic costs these days. And in it's first weekend it brought in over $70 million, demonstrating that the classic story first set down by Herodotus, illustrated in Frank Miller's graphic novel 300, and brought to life by Zach Snyder and Legendary Pictures, can triumph over far larger production budgets at the boxoffice.
