Seeking assistance setting a budget

As a screenwriter, my limited experience with budgets has been for sizzle reel production. I have a project that is under review but have been asked for a budget for it. Any suggestions on where I might learn the basics? Or better yet, anyone interested in helping a girl out???

Seems strange to me that a studio would ask the writer for a budget. As you point out, screenwriters usually have limited experience with budgets. How detailed do they need this budget to be? I might be able to help. Just want to be upfront; a full, usable line-item budget can take well over 50 hours to complete.
