View Full Version : Can someone help me figure out how much my project will cost?

I am producing a series pilot next summer, but everything I've done before has been zero-budget, so I have no idea how to figure out how much everything will cost. I also have dyscalculia, which doesn't help. If anyone feels like giving me an estimate for certain things like, how much will it cost to make a house fire?, etc. I plan to crowdfund on Indiegogo, but I have no idea how much to set as the goal.

There's really no way to know. We would need the entire script and then we would need to sit down with the director to see how he envisions the film and then we would need to know all the specifics about the locations for the shoots to determine permits, rentals, required insurance and the required safety experts on set (required if you use pyrotechnics). Its just impossible to know.
