The Film Doctor site has some truly interesting – and not your typical – resources. I especially enjoyed the article on “Should you go HD Digital for your next film?” and the “Aspect Ratio” chart. Surf by and have a look:

Wow, this is cool. When budgeting for film equipment, sure you can sift through a rate sheet and – with your trusty calculator – figure out an estimate of your camera, grip and lighting package… or you use Whites Interactive online budget planner:

Click, choose and change your selections. Pick or skip insurance options. Be prompted to remember to budget for the expendables. Then get an instant online estimate! Great for instant feedback during for after-hours budgeting sessions…

Enjoy!

Cheers & happy budgeting to you!

Free Film Budget

What? Oh yes…

Thanks to Deke Simon (author of Film and Video Budgets – 5th Edition) and MWP Books, there is a free, downloadable budget you can use as a reference from the MWP site:

For a little more “free”, know that the MWP newsletter is super – not too often; just enough news. Between that and the MWP Facebook site (http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/mwpfilmbooks) where you’ll get a lot more news and as-it-happens updates… you’ll often see a free book giveaway.

Come & join! Enjoy the great and useful industry freebee!

All the best,
