You have your script in hand, you have a creative vision for your film and you’re on your way to bringing your vision to life. What’s missing? Ka-ching! Money… you will need a budget and a plan for how you’ll raise the money to make your film. This is a crucial step in the development process without which, it would be virtually impossible to successfully complete your film (unless everyone’s working for free!).
