Counter For over 15 years "Film & Video Budgets" has been the essential handbook for the independent filmmaker. Written by two pioneers of do-it-yourself filmmaking, this book outlines every element of production.

UPDATED AND REVISED for digital video productions (and video-to-film transfers), this definitive budget book contains detailed formats and sample budgets for many different kinds of productions, from "no budget" movies and documentaries to a $5 million feature – along with all the crucial practical information that's made it an industry bible.


Also includes new and highly useful materials such as a comprehensive master list of line items, which covers just about everything that could possibly be put into a production and chapters on pre-production and setting up a production company. Plus downloadable budgets from www.mwp.com which you can customize.
