The first thing you'll want to get together is a film proposal.
What’s a film proposal? Think of it as a business plan.
Imagine you’re starting a business, and you’re seeking investors. When you have that first lunch meeting with them and you pitch your idea, what will you leave with them after the pitch? A business plan, or a business proposal.
So a film proposal is the same thing. The following is a list of what needs to be in your proposal:
- synopsis of the story
- bio of director and or producer and any other attached talent or crew
- business plan
- list of comps
- distribution plan
- contact sheet
- title page
- marketing strategy
In the next post, I'll go into detail on some of the above items.
