Stage 1:

Stage 1 An Idea

An Idea:

All films start with an idea, a moment of inspiration. Inspirations are all around us for example in books, newspapers and even something as simple as a conversation. Wherever and whoever the idea comes from its always the producer who decides to make the magical moment into reality . The directors take and visualise the script. They know how to put it onto the BIG screen! An Idea

An Idea:

Next the writers define and clarify the idea, the plot, and the main characters. The writers then write a treatment , a one page description of the main story and characters of the film. A pitch contains all the information the producer needs in order to sell the idea to the financiers to commission a script. In general most film ideas come from making a film from a book or an idea from a newspaper, rarely a film is made from a completely fresh new idea. An Idea

Stage 2:

Stage 2 Development finance

Development finance:

All films cost money, a lot of it. The producer uses the treatment , pitch and persuasion to get money for the development of a script. Producers approach film production companies for development money . D evelopment finance

Development finance:

Producers offer future sales and broadcast rights to the film in return for money to develop the script Producers can also apply to a public funding body Producers can pitch the film to a private investor In the hope for support for the project D evelopment finance

Stage 3:

Stage 3 Script development

Script development:

Script development With the development finance secured its down to the writer to deliver the product that the producer and financiers want. First the writer produces a synopsis, he and the producer agree ( or not ) on they key scenes and events in the film. Most writers create a step outline to plan their script.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Part of the writers fee is conditional on delivery of the first draft, this can be the hardest part of screenwriting . When the writer and producer are happy, the draft is sent to the financiers “ all of whom will have their own ideas “ When everyone Is happy , the script is locked and becomes the final draft , the writer is then paid Script development

Stage 4:

Stage 4 Packaging


Packaging The director and producer decide how they want to film it and who they will employ to help them. The producer and director must package the script into a full commercial proposition ready for financing. A common way to make the project more commercial is to attach well known stars to the script.


Packaging The producer must know how much it will cost before turning the film into a proper business proposition Potential investors will want to know how the producer plans to raise the money , and how they plans to ‘pay them back’ The producer packages the film into a viable commercial proposition, now they need to see what people think of it

Stage 5:

Stage 5 Financing


Financing Producers must secure enough funding to make the film to the highest standard possible . Financiers can be anywhere in the world and if the producers want to make enough money, they must travel .

Stage 6:

Stage 6 Pre-production


pre-production The full cast and crew are hired and detailed preparation for the shoot begins The casting director, with the director and producer begins the long process of identifying and casting the actors Storyboards are the blueprints for the film, where every shot is planned in advance by the director

Stage 7:

The shoot:

The shoot Film making can be a constant struggle to keep it on schedule and budget . Shooting begins, funding is released. The camera department is responsible for getting all the footage that the director and editor need to tell the story. Lighting, sound and makeup must be done before the shot can be taken.

Stage 8:

Stage 8 Post production

Post production:

Post production The Post production usually starts during the shoot As the processed footage comes in, the editor assembles it into scenes and creates a narrative sequence for the film Once the picture is locked , the sound department works on the audio track laying, creating and editing every sound

Stage 9:

Stage 9 Sales


Sales The producer sells the film but not outright to the public The producer and sales agent collect everything they will need to sell the film to the distributors . Producers go to great lengths to attract attention to the product.

Stage 10:

Stage 10 Marketing


Marketing As finishing touches are being made, the distributors plan their strategy and begin to market It. The marketing team runs test screening to see how the film is received from the audience. Potential audience for the film is targeted by posters , cinema trailers , T.V spots and other marketing materials. T.V, newspapers and magazines all help spread word about the film.

Stage 11:

Stage 11 Box office Finally !!
