The Budget Book for Film and Television - For first-timers, (and even non-first timers) budgeting is a crucial issue in film/television production. This book is a well-written guide through all the ins and outs of this most important phase of production.

Based on the top budgeting software packages, Movie Magic and EP Budgeting, this book takes the reader through each line item in the budgeting software and describes the background for that item, how it fits into the overall production, and any issues or pitfalls that may arise from it.

This book is a useful reference for independent filmmakers who depend on accurate, easy-to-understand budgeting methods to seek funding for their projects.

Audience: Line producers, production managers, producers, independent filmmakers
