My grumpy inner line producer was skeptical of Film Budgeteers. But I was pleasantly surprised by how well the service performed.
Walk through the process of pre-visualization, shot listing, blocking, shooting and cutting in Three Trembling Cities with writer-director Arthur Vincie.
A typical feature budget has 30 to 40 categories, anywhere from 250 to 300-plus line items, and 400-800 “details” within those items. How does anyone figure all that out? The good news is that you don’t have to start from scratch, or get it right the first time. The process is less mysterious than it seems.
