I’ve just finished the first draft of the budget breakdown for Love Like Hers. I’m working on a budget of $8,000 (£7,000) for this film. It may turn out that I need a little more, something that I’m looking VERY closely at. However, I will be doing everything I can to keep those costs down.
So far, the budget stretches to the following departments on Love Like Hers:
- CAST £1,500
- CREW £1,500
- EQUIPMENT HIRE £1,200
- PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT £100
- WARDROBE & MAKE-UP £150
- PRODUCTION DESIGN £200
- LOCATION / SET FACILITIES £300
- CATERING £500
- TRANSPORT £400
- INSURANCE £500
- MISC £550
Now, of course some of these figures are subject to change. But for now they give me some idea of how any money raised can be divided.
Being quite a resourceful person I’m sure will help me get my hands on the odd freebie. In fact, I’m currently talking to several suppliers in the hope of blagging a few bits of equipment to help release a little pressure on the budget.
The majority of the crew will be working for free, or at a much lower rate than normal. There’s already several individuals who have shown an interest in offering their services for FREE. Something that I WILL NOT forget 🙂
The problem area for me will be the cast. I want a known actress for the main part in the film. My hope is that they will want to get involved for a minimal fee. I’ll keep you posted on how I get on.
So far I’ve raised $2,475 for this film. There have been a lot of interested individuals who will be investing in the coming months and I am very hopeful of reaching the $8k target, and maybe even a little more.
