Production budget template designed to work with all spreadsheets and most computers (Windows and Macintosh)
What It's For
John Thomas has over 20 years of experience budgeting film and TV productions-which he's enjoyed. He's also had several years of experience with stand-alone budgeting software-which he hated. His solution was to develop Easy Budget. Now, not only is he happier with his job, producers are happier with their budgets. Thomas has built over two decades of cost-saving insight into these templates, which means they develop budgets that are dramatically more cost effective.
Versions are available for both feature films and commercials.Feature Film Version (shown above) --This is the budget to use for estimating the cost of shooting a feature film and presenting those figures to the people who will be financing the production.
It's a check list of all typical expenses and a versatile tool for testing and adjusting a film budget.
These are also good templates for corporate video budgets, since they assume the production is being done for a client who will be comparing multiple competitive bids.
The templates for commercials let you track actuals. As production progresses, you can enter actual amounts spent. This helps you better track and manage your budget, anticipate potential overages, create a more accurate reference for future budgets and provide documentation to clients of how every dollar was spent.
