Budgets+proposals+contracts

Hello dvinfo.net,

I have a small video & photography business based in nyc. I've been shooting for a year and I've always been paid either with hard cash or money order. I'm targeting bigger companies and would like to draw proposals+budgets whatever. I would like some advice and even possibly some help--does anyone have a example they could show me and some info on whats best to give to clients?

Michael,

I'm sending you an e-mail with two examples: one contract and one budget for a small western. It's for 35 mm film, but the principles obviously are the same.

A book I find very useful for examples of forms and contracts is:

"The Complete Film Production Handbook" by Eve Light Honthaner (Focal Press).
It covers big productions, but you can select what you need.

Good luck.

Dan.

thanks Dan,

Your info is very usefull--I really really like the proposal
and I'm revising it a little bit so it fits my needs. Using this type of contract will definetly be good for me. I also plan to order that book you suggested-thanks for the help.

Hi Chris,

I had tweaked some existing files, but threw them away after e-mailing Michael.
Perhaps you can send him an e-mail asking for a copy or perhaps he will see this post amd send the files to you.
If that doesn't work please post again or e-mail me directly and I'll "tweak" the files again, but it's quicker & easier if Mike still has them.

Hi there,
I am currently doing an advertising proposal, and your example may be of great use to me.

Do you mind sending a copy to me as well? Thanks a lot.
