Film Finance Experts Agree – For a Film Budget You Get What You Pay For
Obtaining film financing for your movie production is a difficult task and not one a filmmaker will get many chances at with an investor. Professional producers and directors understand this and do not take shortcuts with a film budget that would risk their integrity and understanding of the collaborative nature of filmmaking and the importance of delegating the critical work of the creation of a film budget to an experienced line producer with many years in the field.
As one industry professional who is well known and revered for his extensive film finance knowledge stated recently:
“If producers want to be taken seriously by any financier, then they need to have a budget, a schedule and a finance plan, which means who you hire to create these documents is just as important as the information they contain.”
Templates, online websites, cheap attempts to circumvent the quality work of serious veteran movie producers with the knowledge and understanding it takes to create a finance and camera ready film budget and schedule are looked down upon as almost laughable and insufficient to move a production forward. A true film budget and schedule is one created by a line producer with expertise in the field of the production manager and film producer using all their skills on your project to determine the right cost.
