Description - Planning the Low-Budget Film by Robert Latham Brown

Finalist, 2007 Benjamin Franklin Awards, for Best New Voice Nonfiction and Professional/Technical Novice and aspiring filmmakers seeking to learn how to develop a feature film will find a step-by-step blueprint in this guide. Drawing upon the more than 30-years experience of an industry professional, the book examines how to identify and break down shooting sequences in scripts, scout locations, create a production board and shooting schedule, deal with unions, budget a film, and rebound when it all goes wrong. Along the way, readers learn how to economize to get the most value from limited funds and what to look for in a prospective crew. To facilitate an understanding of the concepts, a real-life example of a complete budget and production board for an independent low-budget feature film, The Anarchist Cookbook , is provided. The guide's concise list of contacts--film commissions in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and England; payroll companies; and vendors of supplies--along with a directory of unions and guides will simplify sourcing. Other supplementary aids include a complete glossary of industry terms, a list of all safety bulletins issued by the Industry Wide Labor/Management Safety committee, and a comprehensive index.
