How to write Film Proposals that gets Film Funding

I often get asked how to write a film proposal, but first we need to understand the difference between a film proposal and a film business plan.


A Film Proposal is for you to attract key cast and crew

The Film Proposal is a visual representation of how your film is going to look, your vision as a completed end-product. You use it to excite key crew and cast to come onboard your project.

The more experienced crew and cast you sign up, the more likely you will get your film produced.
