Week Five: Budget

Budgeting is a reality of film-making. Using the Screen Producers as a guide, I got the weekly cost for a low-budget web-series to be $10,155 with the costing being $2,031 per day.

Here is the breakdown for a daily cost which I figured.
Producer $750, Director $164, First AD $144, Second AD $122, Runner $107, DoP $157, First AC $107, Clapper $107, Data Wrangler $107, Sound Recordist $144, Editor $122.

Now I am sure these numbers as well below the industry standard, but it’s what I could figure out from the reference.

Maths and budgeting is not my strong point really.
