The Business of Media – Development

THE BUSIEST AND MOST DEMANDING STAGE OF FILMMAKING

So much is happening in this simple representation of business and creative actions that I usually go through these points in a live workshop. As you can see it’s very busy. It needs some structure to review it.

CONTROL POINTS

Film Development

Film and Television Development

So, I came up with the following “Control Points” – just to give the reader a chance to catch their breath:

a)Ownership of the Rights
b)Production Budget
c)Cashflow “Out” (Costs)
d)Types of Financing – Terms
e)Types of Film Tax Incentives
f)Cashflow “In” (Funding)
RAVE REVIEWS
I went over this on my last three workshops for Women-In-Film and had rave reviews. Especially since we took some time to actually practice the steps with templates that I provided.
ENHANCE YOUR CREDIBILITY METER
Although it’s always easier to absorb the information  in a live workshop, I resolved to put it online as a self-study course.
Check it out. It will raise your Credibility-Meter with potential financiers.
Cheers / John
