[Review] Film Business Plan Template | Great Jumping Off Point and Confidence Builder

Film Business Plan TemplateI found the business plan template and film financial comparison table a great starting point. Reading through the Film Financing Manual I gained a lot of confidence that reinforced my own ideas.

I ended up taking the bits I wanted and customizing other sections to create a condensed and concise 11 page business plan, backed up by a whole lot of figures and data. In the US economic slump I found investors were looking for alternate investments with high yield - my Film Investor Brief was perfect!

[Review] Both FilmProposals Site and Business Tools Are Extremely Helpful

Independent Film Financing Projections

I am still in the midst of writing our business plan, and keep referring back to FilmProposals after purchasing the Film Financial Projects template and Film Business Plan template. Not only do both continue to be the right tools (after researching A LOT and seeing others out there), but the website resources are extremely helpful as well.

I like having the template to follow, but also know that film business plans are different than regular business plans. That makes the task seem very daunting, especially gathering the financial data needed to plead your case to investors. By far that is the toughest part, so having the financial template makes it a lot less scary to tackle.

Indies Up 41.8 Percent at Mid-Year

What a great headline! The North American box office for independent films from January to June 2012 is $2.2 billion, 42 percent of the $5.2 billion total box office.

Hi Tim: This is a great question! While we don't specialize in TV, we have had a few customers who have successfully adapted our Film Financial Projections for TV Execs. However, these were TV industry folks, not someone totally new to the game. For example, read what "TV Producer now Consultant" had to say about using our Business Plan Tools. I will email him and see if he is available to help you.

Others - have YOU pitched a TV Show? Tell us how you did it and what we can do to help other aspiring TV Show Writers.

the early feedback from the "suits" in this project is that I've presented a clear yet compact overview of the prospects.

-TV Producer quoted text

I had no idea it was feasible to get a handle on film finance myself and was really inspired to see that I don't have to be a writer hawking scripts until I die, I could actually make the filmquoted text
