Uwe Boll hires himself.
Only on paper. He rarely wastes his own money.
Until a few years ago ago he financed his "movies" through German investors who wanted to exploit a tax loophole that allowed them to fully write off and recoup losses incurred by the movie (a sure thing with Boll involved).
Part of that loophole has since been fixed, but apparently it's still profitable enough to waste money on his train wrecks.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
