Better than sushi! Ordering from this menu will contribute to your success as a producer! Really Useful Information (RUI) is sharing two Bento menu items from our Producer’s Bento Box series. You’ll learn tools and gain access to insider knowledge and information from top industry experts.

 

Here’s what we’ve ordered up for the PGA:

 

Bento item #2:  How to Get Your Low Budget Feature Financed

 

It takes just as much commitment to get a $500,000 film made as it does to get a $15 million film made. Because of new technology $250,000 can be the new $2.5 million. Here’s what you will learn in this RUI session:

 

·         How to budget for your production.

·         The Friends and Family model.

·         The fundraising model.

·         The Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act and what it means to you.
