Budget and Scheduling

 

Creating a schedule and budget early in your process is the key to a successful production and end product. Much like a foundation of a house, the Budget and Schedule is the foundation of a solid production. 

Having these elements allow you to approach investor with a set budget that you have absolute faith and knowledge that your project will be able to be completed for the amount that you are asking for and you will not need to return for additional funds. 

The schedule and budget also allows you to know your dilemmas early so that you can make a decision that best fits your project early on. 

For example you make feel that you are able to shoot you 110 page script in 10 days, however, once broke down into number of pages and how fast you will need to move, you may feel that a longer shoot is necessary. Having that decision early will help you build a budget around that longer shoot and help to ease concerns and last minute scene cutting on set.
