Documentary Budgeting

Budget your film project hands-on as you learn to balance funders’ demands and creative goals.

How do you develop a budget? What are the elements that go into each line item? Reminder, as a filmmaker you have value and thus you need to be a line item. This hands-on workshop will introduce you to how best to develop a budget that meets your funders requests, creative objectives, and personal needs i.e. rent and food money. In this interactive exercise, participants can come with their laptop loaded with either Excel or Google Sheets software and start to build their budget.


Early Brid $50.00

General Admission $55.00
