I've heard a few things about mr. boyle but what I really wanted to know was..

On 28 Days Later how did he achieve that gritty affect? I would really like to know and what I've heard was, since it was an independant movie, he used a somewhat "cheap" camera and blew the image size up. I also heard he shot it with a digital camera so I was wondering if that could be done in something like final cut with footage from a digital home video camera. I'm looking to make a career in directing but have nothing but a home video camera (which will soon change due to getting a job) but I really want to be my own DP when I do so. If I could get some advice on how to get my film to look like Traffic I'd greatly appreciate it. (sorry about the sudden change of topic to traffic). I would like to know how he got the Tiajuana effect. it looked gritty-ish as well. Thanks for any help!

Well firstly this film wasn't shot by Danny Boyle, it was shot by Anthony Todd Mantle a DOP world renown for his alternative filming techniques, including low level consumer DV cameras.

Check out Festen and Julian Donkey Boy for his other interesting Digital work.
