raising money for your feature

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.
