Description

Simply put, a film budget is a list of all the stuff and people you need to make your film, and a schedule is when and where you need it.
Always considered the boring bit by film producers and directors, the budget and schedule are the spines of any production. If you get the budget (the money part) wrong, your film will stall half-finished without cash. Get the schedule (the time) wrong, and your film will suffer – either from loss of quality or remain unfinished because you have run out of time (and budget!)
This evening explains how scripts are analyzed and whipped into shape budget-wise and schedule-wise.
  • Script breakdown
  • Assessing prices
  • Union vs non-union
  • Creating a do-able schedule
