Description:

On time and on budget: the Holy Grail for filmmakers. Budgeting and scheduling are easy in principle but hard in practice. The successful producer has a solid plan for juggling dozens of activities and costs while retaining the flexibility to cope with those inevitable last-minute changes and stay on course. Other resources look at budgeting and scheduling in isolation; this book is unique in covering the two closely intertwined activities in a single volume. Readers get both topics for the price of one book; competitors cover each topic separately. All the fundamentals of line producing are covered in a quick-reference format and the tips apply no matter what kind of scheduling or budgeting software you're using. . Useful tricks of the trade show you how to squeeze the most of a limited budget and tight schedule . Includes specific tips for film, video, shorts, online projects, corporate and educational video, and docs . Companion web site features useful forms/templates, and 60 minutes of video demonstrating line producing techniques and case studies-see the principles put to work! . Includes sample budgets/schedules from different types of projects that you can adapt and use for your own project
