Comments (4) January 5, 2018 at 3:14 pm As a producer/line producer who specializes in pitch decks for filmmakers seeking funding to me a business plan is extremely important. It's a road map on the life span of your film, intended market, potential revenue, and exit plan. I've worked on budgets ranging from $50k to $2.5 million. Its all the same you need a finished film to distribute. We all collective agree that a business plan is a projection. We have no idea if it will ever find it's audience but its extremely important to have a Plan A, Plan B, and Plan C on how your film will make money. Alex you are right about putting a deadline on your film. If your budget is $250,000.00 and you only have $75,000.00 shoot it!
