What You’ll Learn In Your Step by Step Guide to Producing a $1 to $3 Million Movie?
Session 1: Create a Project That Sells and Delivers on Screen
Not every genre and not every script works for distribution in the US and abroad. Knowing what kinds of stories sell is the essential first step. Securing and protecting the idea is as important as developing a strong script that can attract meaningful talent, distribution, and financing. It is critically important to know how to break down that script into a budget that delivers a high production quality as well as a commercial film.

The Rights – Secure the rights to a project and apply the most optimal terms

Packaging – Attract the right director and cast, and apply appropriate terms
Budgeting – Important steps to consider when budgeting a low-budget script
Session 2: Sales and Distribution
Low-budget films have the advantage in that they can make a huge profit from distribution. But they often also have the disadvantage of not getting any distribution at all. A large percentage of low-budget films never make it on the silver screen. In this week’s session, we’ll discuss the steps low-budget producers should know to make sure they get distribution and what options are available to optimize distribution revenues.

Session 3: Financing Low-Budget Films
While low-budget films have a huge upside, it is not easy to secure funding for them. Knowing what steps to take to identify the finance sources that work best for low-budget films and choosing a project and a distribution path that works for investors and other financing partners is essential in securing funding for a low-budget film. In this week’s session, we’ll identify the various finance sources that are available today, how they fit best together to optimize profits, and what steps to take to secure them for your low-budget project.

That conversation can change when investors realize you understand the risks and know how to mitigate them and make a profit with the project.
