The Craft: Knowing Your Budget

Max Timm • May 6, 2019

As part of Max Timm's ongoing solo podcast, The Craft, this week's recording is all about being the authority over your work, and that includes being knowledgeable about how much your script might cost, why, and how.

Here is a little snippet from the podcast:

"The best answer to this question is pretty simple, though. Do your research. That is basically telling you that the general answer to your question is, yes. You should have an understanding of what kind of budget your film could receive. You should be aware of what exactly in your script is going to catapult it into a higher budget range. There is a larger issue at hand here, however. And that is? You need to be the authority of your work."

If you're looking for support, feedback, script evaluations, one-on-one notes and brainstorming, you should consider working with Max and The Story Farm. They offer the most comprehensive consulting services you'll find as no one is as hands-on with you and your scripts as Max is. Go to to learn more, or email to talk with him directly.

Happy writing.
