This week Timothy and Alrik talk about how they go about budgeting their short films and offer some advice on how to get started, is there a certain amount you need to make a good short film or should just start with whatever you’ve got?
The Daily Struggle – Cleaning House/Alrik’s Short Film
Timothy is curious why Alrik mentioned in a previous episodes that he wished they had more listeners, what changed from back when we started and it didn’t matter?
Now that we are getting more people requesting to be guests on the show, how do we decide who to bring on? It can’t only be people we know personally, but what perimeters should we use to choose?
Last week Alrik talked about shooting the Korean/American short ‘A Good Man’, now the movie is done, edited and off to it’s first festival, how did it go?
Main Topic – Budgeting Your Short Film
Timothy and Alrik have both made multiple short films at vastly different price points, so how do they figure out what kind of budget they need for their films?
- Do you start with whatever number you have or is their a certain amount of money you NEED before you can make a good looking short film?
- What kind of software do you use, how do you break it down?
- What are some of the things that you need to budget for that everyone forgets?
- What are some essential things you need to get started budgeting a film?
