This is a workshop for practitioners, who want to acquire, apply and manage their finances for a film project. On the first day we will provide the necessary information on funding. The second day will be dedicated to working on funding applications; either on a sample project or on your personal project.
We will look into the German and International funding scene for film.
You will learn on how to produce and obtain the required documentation, calculation , contracts and permits for the project and on how to fill the application forms.
We will advise you on how to best approach the subject and on how to creatively improve your chances.
Handouts, sample contracts, financial plans, calculation sheets and other information will be provided.
Participants who want to work on their personal application are requested to provide the following information up front until 05.April 18, so that the lecturer can prepare the consultation. Any participant is requested to provide at least a biography. Your data will be treated by the lecturer and the workshop participants under non-disclosure:
Information needed for consultation: Biography and/or Filmography, Script, Synopsis, Treatment, Mood Board, Shooting List, Calculation (if available), Marketing material (if available)
The Workshop will be conducted in English. We will be using Microsoft Excel spread sheet software and Preproducer (https://www.preproducer.com/) for the calculation of budgets.. Any user can apply for a free test version of the software.
For your information: The use of a shooting scheduling and film calculation software as Preproducer or SesamSoft facilitates the budgeting process, but can be achieved by other means as well e.g. solely by using spreadsheet software.
