Jon Heder’s character Napoleon Dynamite used to be named Seth in director Jared Hess’ student short, Peluca. The 9-minute movie follows the nerdy dancer skipping school, shopping for fanny packs, and chatting with pal Pedro about illegal ninja moves. Hess shot his movie on 16mm film in his hometown of Idaho over a span of two days, for a budget of $500. The feature’s budget wasn’t much bigger, since star Heder was paid only $1,000 to play Napoleon again..
