About the Big Budget Film Funding Workshop
Many filmmakers want to produce big budget indie films with budgets as high at $5M, and films at this budget level can make a profit. But these projects are designed and built to make money, and that is possible because they get the funding they need to be made. In this workshop we discuss the various funding options and related financial strategies producers use to make relatively low cost movies that generate big revenues.
- Ma (2019) / $5M Budget generated $46M US/Canada Gross
- The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018) / $5M Budget Generated $25M US/Canada Gross
- Eighth Grade (2018) / $2M generated 14M US/Canada Gross
- Gretel & Hansel (2020) / 5M generated $15M US/Canada Gross
- Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) / 1MM generated $8.9MM US/Canada Gross
- Unsane (2018) / $1.5M generated $7.7MM US/Canada Gross
- Winchester (2018) / $3.5M generated $25M US/Canada Gross
Topics addressed in this workshop include:
- Development: What it is and why it's critical to ensuring your film isn't a dangerous waste of time and money.
- Funding: Where money for projects at these budget levels comes from, including where to find investors and what you need to know about incentives.
- Attaching the Right Cast & Crew: Why these choices can't be guess work and how to get the advice and metrics you need to make the right decisions.
- Accounting, Legal Support, Insurance, Unions: Getting the help you need to reduce your risk and maximize the value of your project.
- Distribution: The wild west of Film Distribution, and why pre-sales are a necessity as your budget level climbs.
