Joshua Leonard Blair Witch Salary: The Blair Witch Project was made on a budget of $60,000. The film was sold at Sundance in 1999 to Artisan Entertainment for $1.1 million. It eventually generated $250 million at the global box office. Unfortunately only a tiny percentage of the box office revenue went to the cast.
Joshua and his cast mates ended up suing Artisan after footage of the three of them appeared in the Blair Witch sequel. It's unclear if that case resulted in a settlement.
Joshua, Heather Donahue and Michael C. Williams earned $1000 per day over the eight filming days, a total of $8000 for the project. In the years following, their total earnings after some small bonuses and royalties amounted to $300,000 a piece.
