Seriously, if I were the mods I'd ban that "gilteed" guy, who is in fact one of CEM's lackeys. As I mentioned earlier in the thread, this company is the epitome of a scam.

I'm glad this topic came up,

I'm writing a killer new budget for my next script, but can't decide how much to allocate for "craft services". Any thoughts????

Maybe the pros on here could start an advanced budgeting forum.

That's a tough one I opted for the Thai Tiki Vegan


...but the twist is it was all cooked in meat sauce. The execs just about **** and were pulling from their discretionary before the day was over.

why did you post this question here? it has nothing to do with the topic.

anyway --
figure out the average number of cast and crew for each day of production.
allocate the amount of money you want to spend for each. ie - $15
number of cast & crew X $15 X number of days of production = craft services budget

Nikee - I suspect it was sarcasm.

CEM's business model involves telling writers that they need CEM to create a business plan & budget for their films.

PJC's response was a comment about the absurdity of a writer needing a budget for the film laid out.

(I've never seen any of CEM's budgets - but I've seen one of their business plans/pitch documents. It was - quiet frankly - embarrassingly amateurish. I really felt bad for the person who had paid for it)

Back when they called me, the going rate was about $4-7k, IIRC.

And by the way, I'm from Chicago too. I'm now out in SoCal. But the Chi will always be my home.
I still have a very warm place in my heart for the Chi.
