What Can We Help You With?


Any filmmaker who has ever searched for "Film Budget Templates" knows how hard it is to find exactly what you need - a budget template to start from.There are plenty of sites that help you learn how to create a budget, but the shortcut is to get an actual, working budget to start from, that has everything prebuilt - Unions, Contingency, Incentive Credits, and more.Finally, with Indie Film Budgets, you can get a bundle of film budget templates to start from so that you can get to a working budget for your film, whether you need it for investors, producers, the director, or for production.The Indie Film Budget template bundle includes:• Short film budgets at $15k and $30k
• $250k, $500k, $750k, $1M, $1.25M, $1.5M, $2M, $2.5M budgets
• SAG, DGA, WGA, and IATSE options at $1M and above budgets
• PDF, .mbd (Movie Magic 7), and/or Showbiz Budgeting versions
• Walkthrough videos on how to use the templates
• Complimentary updates and additions



Custom budgets take into account your script, the amount of money you'd like to spend on your project, what unions are involved, what state you're filming in and their incentive programs, and more.When you purchase a custom budget, you get a real line producer to consult with for 30 minutes, they will read through your script, and create a budget specific to your project.You can use this budget to go to financiers, as a starting point for your line producer and UPM, and to get your project to the next step.You'll get a full budget that includes:• Top Sheet, Account Level, and Detail Level, in PDF and Movie Magic or Showbiz Budgeting options.
• SAG, DGA, WGA, IATSE union fringes depending on projects specifications
• Accounting for overtime
• Incentive calculation depending on which state you're filming in
