So we have 94 pages of what we think is a solid script ready to shoot. Now what? What we’ve learned so far is that an important element that we need right off the bat is a budget. Neither of us have ever determined a budget before, nor do we know for sure how to correctly, but we are willing to accept the challenge. We’ve decided to each tackle the script in a different way.
I’ve decided to take on the actual script breakdown, and not just because I enjoy highlighting. Breaking down the script by location, characters, time of day etc which will put us in a good position to determine a budget.
It’s not a quick or easy process for either of us, but we’re moving right along. Once we’ve figured out a budget, we can start reaching out to actors, crew members and potential backers.
Hopefully those smiles on our faces will be a constant through this whole thing 🙂
