This is a group for people who are interested in learning from and networking with new and experienced film makers in the Atlanta area. Our goal is to connect film people, facilitate the creation of high quality materials, and complete projects.
A film business plan is an essential document that every filmmaker should use and understand. The most obvious benefit of preparing a film business plan is that it can be used to raise money to complete your production. Equally important, however, is that you can use it as a tool to forecast revenue, plan marketing and distribution, recruit famous actors, experienced production people, key team members, and generally keep your production on track.
Film Business Plan vs Film Budget Breakdown
The film budget breakdown covers only the resources required to shoot your film. It is typically prepared by the executive producer, line producer or unit production manager. It does not address the other resources required to make your project successful.
A film business plan, in contrast, provides all the detailed information you or an investor will need to ensure that your film gets produced and distributed.
Come learn the fundamentals with us. Here is our deck.
Listen and learn from a panel of experts who help you evaluate your film project and decide the most appropriate distribution channel(s) for your project. That is, is your project more suitable for movie-theater distribution, Netflix, HBO, TV YouTube, etc.
The panel also discuses the best way to negotiate your distribution deal based on industry standards.
Come learn tips on how to properly prepare yourself for a pitch session. Hear industry professionals share their knowledge of what is expected to get decision makers to "bite" and green-light your story idea. You will receive the tools necessary to create a presentation that will "WOW" producers and get your film made.
Then, prepare to practice what you've learned in our mock pitch session following the panel discussion.
