Scheduling and Budgeting Your Film
A Panic-Free Guide
On time and on budget: the Holy Grail for filmmakers.
Budgeting and scheduling are easy in principle but hard in practice. The successful producer has a solid plan for juggling dozens of activities and costs while retaining the flexibility to cope with those inevitable last-minute changes and stay on course.
Other resources look at budgeting and scheduling in isolation; this book is unique in covering the two closely intertwined activities in a single volume. Readers get both topics for the price of one book; competitors cover each topic separately. All the fundamentals of line producing are covered in a quick-reference format and the tips apply no matter what kind of scheduling or budgeting software you're using.
