Finding Funds for Your Film or TV Project

We rated this book:


Money. Who doesn’t like it, want it, or need it for some dream they have? In Finding Funds For Your Film or TV Project, author Gini Graham Scott breaks down the nitty-gritty details of procuring funds for that film project you have dreamed about since you were an inquisitive kid filming everything from putting socks on your dog to your grandma snoring. Scott gives you a systematic approach to acquiring funds, from small budget video to big time film, with as little headache as possible, finding a writer, determining your cast, creating a budget and schedule, and packaging and presenting your business plan to potential investors.

What grabbed my interest with this book is it wasn’t just a bunch of in-depth paragraphs; instead, Scott utilizes bullets, which help readers scan the information more quickly and find exactly what they are looking for. The appendix also includes sample letters, spreadsheet examples for structuring your venture, and mock shooting schedule layouts. This might be a small book, but don’t discount it as it just might put your name up on the marquee! 5 stars for sure!
