Throwing money at the screen is the main method that Hollywood uses to create production value. However, money does not define production value. Production value is the presence of anything out of the ordinary that is not easy to obtain.
It is easy to spend money. It is much harder to ensure that every dollar that is spent will contribute to value that appears on the screen.
You must train yourself to find sources of production value for little cost. A good producer is always seeking ways to improve the production value of their picture from the resources around them.
