Default Film funding proposal

Those anyone know what a standard film funding proposal should look like. I just finished the first draft of my script and I'm looking for funding.

Default Re: Film funding proposal

If you have just finished the first draft of your script, then you are not ready to look for funding.

Sorry, but that's the reality.

Have you gotton feedback yet to indicate what parts of the script need changing? After all, it is wrong to assume that professional writers need several drafts to get a perfect script, while you can just get funding from your first draft.

(I'm assuming that you are not a professional screenwriter)

Have you ever produced a movie before? Can you determine how many days of filming would be required, and how many people at what overtime rates? If not, then how can you estimate the budget that is outlined in the funding proposal?

Have you organised a completion guarantee? Are you familiar with the SEC rules governing looking for finance in the USA ?

It is great that you have finished the first draft of your script. Now post a few pages on the feedback page to see what needs changing.

Good luck,

(PS: If you REALLY want to read some film funding proposals, then you'll be able to find some with google. I looked a few years ago and downloaded a dozen or so. Looking back at them now, though, none of the films have been made (to my knowledge), so they may not be examples of successful funding proposals!)
