  2. The Breakdown and Budget

Once the script has been finalized and the Producing Team and Director are in place, the film needs to be “broken down” to determine how many days it will take to shoot. Film scripts shoot an average of 4-6 pages per day, so a 120-page feature film can take up to a month to make!

A script breakdown also tells the Production Team everything else they need to know about the project—the total number of roles that need to be cast, the total number of locations that need to be secured, what sort of props will be needed, etc.

Once all of this information is gathered, the Producers can then assign a dollar figure or “Budget” to the project and begin the search for financing.
