Budgeting and Scheduling Your Film
Week 2 of the Producers’ Foundation Certificate is presented by Michael Sparaga.
Film Budgeting and Scheduling provides the critical backbone of your film. A film budget is a list of all the resources and people you need to make your film. A schedule is when and where you need them. This session runs through the essentials, conventions and details required for film budgeting and scheduling your shooting days.
“All classes were informative and the tutors were really one of the best, and though I know there’s a lot more I need to learn I left feeling a lot more confident about handling the role of a Producer and should be back for more!”
Always considered the boring bit by film producers and directors, the budget and schedule are the spine 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!)
