Line Producer Pricing

What is a fair price for a line producer to do up a budget for a feature film script?

Alok Kapur

Hi Tye, it really depends upon the amount of time it's going to take to break down the script and also it's complexity. Are you looking for someone to budget a film?

Tye Evans

Thank you so much Regina!

Regina Lee

No worries, Tye.

Why pay someone else if you can do it yourself

Maura Anderson

It will depend on the level of experience, you do get what you pay for, but for an experienced line producer to do a breakdown, schedule, budget it typically costs anywhere from $1500-3000 and that is based on the budget of the film and therefore how many elements go into it. This will include some revisions and calculations for tax incentives.

Murad Sayfuddin

Hi Maura, What do you meant from 1500 - 3000 $? Per day, per month, entire deal?

Maura Anderson

To create a schedule and a budget. It is not a daily or weekly rate, but it will typically take 1-2 weeks for them to complete.

Mark Ratering

I have been a producer for thirty years. I have all the high tech budget gizmos, I would do it for free if it secured my job as the producer. Doing a budget is so easy now.

Rafael Pinero

Easy if your good at breaking down the script and at calculating the shooting days.

Rick James

Rafael I breakdown scripts and make budget sheets and schedules with my eyes closed. Easypeezee.
