About The Workshop:

Everyone knows that any good film starts with the script, but no movie gets made without money. Understanding how to construct your film for the most optimal budget is crucial to getting ahead in the industry. This workshop will give a comprehensive look at understanding a budget sheet, managing a complicated budget, how to financially analyze a script, and ultimately maximizing your funds to get the best return on investment. We will also discuss hidden aspects of film finance that often get overlooked. All of this to help you better communicate with your team, investors and give your film the very best chance of being funded.

In this workshop you’ll learn:

  • How to create an easy to use budget sheet
  • How to write for a sensible budget
  • How to estimate your movie’s budget
  • Maximizing your budget for production and profit
  • How to use your budget to negotiate and secure funding
  • Pitfalls and hidden expenses of a typical budget
