Budgeting For Documentaries
A budget is an important planning tool for documentary films. It is also a necessity if you are planning to fundraise for your film. Far from numbers alone, the budget is another way of telling the story of your film. In this session with Docs In Progress Executive Director Erica Ginsberg, we will go over the elements which make up a documentary budget, different approaches to budgeting, and how to keep your budget realistic but flexible so that it can adapt to the realities of filmmaking. You will also receive a template for creating your own documentary budget.
