Class #1
Sunday, August 14th, 12-5p
How to Breakdown Your Script

You have a script.  It’s ready to go to.  But how do you know how much your film will cost or how long it will take to shoot?  You start by breaking the screenplay down scene by scene, with each element in your screenplay accounted for – from actors to extras, props to set dressing, vehicles to special equipment, wardrobe to make-up, sound to stunts, lighting fx to special fx – as well as breaking your scene pages into 1/8ths.  Whether you have movie magic, gorilla, and just paper and pen, this class will teach you everything you need to know to get that screenplay in shape for scheduling and budgeting, then shooting, and you’ll even learn a little about proper screenplay format.

Class #2
Saturday, August 20th, 3-6p
How to Schedule Your Film

You have your screenplay broken down, but now what?  How do you know how long it will take to shoot?  How do you schedule your movie without a shot list or locations or actors?  This class will show you the numerous considerations that go into scheduling, and what is most important now, in the development stage, when you need to put together the budget for your potential investors or even for a social media fundraising campaign.

Class #3
Saturday, August 27th, 1-6p

How to Budget Your Movie

It’s broken down and scheduled, but how can you possibly know what it will cost to make?  How do you know what things cost without pricing each thing needed?  How much the actors and crew will cost?  What if I can’t pay anyone, but need to raise money for equipment, art direction, and food?  How do I measure that without a DP, Art Director, or Foodie?  This class will cover all the basics – what items you must pay for, ranges of crew and cast salaries, equipment costs, and how to leverage nothing into something…thinking outside the box to help cover those extra costs.

Business proposals are always evolving.  Whether you are looking for $25,000 or $250,000 or more, the basics are the same.  Learn what to include and not include in a business proposal, as well as the relevance and legality of including a strong risk statement, whether making it “artsy” is a good idea, how you can better sell yourself and your team, and what a festival, sales, and marketing plan should really look like.
