It is not uncommon to see vast majority of people across various continents watching movies, either in their private homes or in cinema. The themes of these movies vary, cutting across comedy, romance and even highly exceptional ones. Little do we know of what producers endure to bring a single movie to live. To be frank, the financial implication of staging a film is on the high side, meanwhile, the fee varies with the type of the film. The much bigger and exceptional films require more financial commitment. More often than not, films focusing around genre and specialty cost around $5million and $10million to stage.
In 2017,The Sundace Institute recently conducted an interview and found that the cost of a dramatic feature was at an average of $1million while that of documentary costs $400,000. With the advent of the current global economic meltdown, one can only imagine the cost. The open secret about this is that there is paucity of fund everywhere. It is an indication that the film industry is filled with talents who have been crippled due to lack of funds. Consequently, a lot of film makers in a view of becoming relevant in the industry fund the project of film production from their personal pocket, and nobody get paid for their efforts. Their sole aim becomes to simply satisfy the viewers out there.
The participants in the film, including the actors and other members of the crew have no option but to eke out their meager amount to finance their profession. What a sorry and insalubrious situation. Taking a leaf from the world’s most renowned film festival, the Sunance film festival in 2018, the statistics of submitted projects was put at around 13,468 and roughly 390,000 talents were employed. To cost of producing such a huge festival of this nature was put at $2.29 billion USD. To cap it all, accessing funds for the production of films across various themes, be it TV pilots, feature films, web series or even short films is becoming tougher with the passage of time.
