Docs In Progress Webinar: Budgeting for Documentaries
Wednesday, April 21 2010
7:00pm â€“ 8:00pm eastern standard time
Having a comprehensive budget for your documentary film is essential not only as a part of funding proposals, but as a means to keeping control over the production process from beginning to end. The budget is as much a story of the film as the trailer or treatment. This one-hour webinar from Docs In Progress co-founder Adele Schmidt will focus on why you need a budget, how you structure a budget, what elements should be included in a budget, and how a budget evolves over the course of making the documentary. Webinar participants will also receive a sample budget which can be used as a template for your own projects.
This webinar is appropriate for anyone who is making their first independent documentary or for more experienced international filmmakers who want to understand common budgeting formats for raising funds in the United States. Since the webinar is conducted entirely online, all you need is Internet access at a computer with speakers or headphones at the time of the webinar and the ability to call in to a U.S. phone number via landline, cell phone, or Skype. There is no software to download.
