- The Process by which Films are Funded
In order to produce a film, there must be large funds readily available to start the production process. The amount that a movie will cost, depends mainly on the size of the production, and what is going into the process of making it. A movie with A-List celebrities, animation and special effects can dramatically effect the budget price.
Films are funded in several different ways:
- “When people go see a movie in theaters, rent it when it’s available for home viewing, buy the DVD or purchase the soundtrack, the studio responsible gets a percentage of the proceeds” (Jessika Toothman).
- There are also contracts that are made for different television networks and pay-per-view stations.
- Merchandising and licensing contracts
- Box office sales
Funding a project as large as a movie takes a lot of time and consideration when a budget is being laid out. Every detail must be thoroughly thought through, and accounted for in the plan. Some movie budgets have gotten to upward costs of 425 Million dollars!
We will be requesting the entire 50,000$ for our movie!
This will go into set costs, cameras, crew, food, special effects, actors and actresses, and copyright fees.
