    well, thank you. I was fortunate enough to have a co-producer this time around, but even then, total budget was less than normal for me.

    And your quest for knowledge is totally cool, and, in fact, really helpful to know how much a film is made for (a specific breakdown is even better for learning), i just know a lot of people wouldn't be comfortable spilling that info publicly, and definitely shouldn't be a required element or judging basis. But I'm sure a lot of filmmakers would oblige through a PM if you asked.

    FYOS was made for 0.00 dollars.

    Maybe 100.00 if you add up all of the twelve packs I burned down whilst cutting it.

    Ohhh... I totally understand that. I certainly see issues could arise from posting that info. I should have used more discretion.


    If beer we drink comes out of the budget, I'm gonna need investors.

    LB&L was about the same pizza budget and a couple 30 packs of PBR, much of which is still in my fridge.

    Occupational Hazards was made for just under $35,000. Unfortunately we had a pay-or-play deal with Clooney and film is really expensive when you do 17 takes of the master shot!

    You get what you pay for... The performances were Oscar worthy.
