YOUR PRODUCTION BEGINS RIGHT NOW. Let's create a detailed line-item budget for your film, episode, or series — a budget you can hand to investors, impress your crowdfunders with, or just use as a blueprint to actually produce your project.To do that, we're going to ask you a few easy questions about your film or series. (e.g. How many cast members? Is your project stunt heavy? Do you think your project might need a lot of visual FX? Stuff like that.) We'll then feed the answers you provide into our budgeting algorithm, which calculates the type of film you have, then assembles a budget using the latest costs for gear, rentals, labor rates, union rates (if applicable), fringes, contingencies, and more. BELOW, select what kind of project you'd like to budget for and then click NEXT.
That's absolutely fine, but our budgeting software has to put that money *somewhere*, so we will place it in Contingency, which may give you a somewhat larger-than-usual Contingency percentage.
Keep in mind that all five other categories (Stunts, Special Effects, Make-up Effects, Animals, and Visual Effects) will be budgeted at $0. If that's not what you meant to do, make changes in the boxes above. If that is what you meant to do, hit NEXT below to continue.
That's absolutely fine! But please remember that because all 10 customization points are going into only one of the six categories, those other five categories will be budgeted at $0. If that's not what you meant to do, make changes in the boxes above to re-allocate your 10 customization points. If that is what you meant to do, feel free to hit NEXT.
That's absolutely fine! The category or categories you did put points in will receive those budget amounts.
If that's not what you meant to do, make changes in the boxes above and re-allocate your 10 customization points. If that is what you meant to do, feel free to hit NEXT.
