Film Proposals (bio's)

After the title page and synopsis comes Bio's.

Here is where you write a simple, one paragraph bio on all the important people who are attached to your film thus far. Of course, you as the writer/ director will have your bio along with others like a producer you’ve attached, a casting director, any actors, a composer, a director of photography.

Don’t have anyone attached other than you at this point? Then stop and begin to gather a team.

If you're in the early stages of fundraising, more than likely you won't have many positions filled. But to make your proposal look more professional and appealing, now is a good time to step back and think about bringing people on board. At least a DP, a Producer, and possibly a Composer and Editor.

Next post I'll continue with creating the film proposal and we'll get into the business plan.
