Movie Magic Scheduling & Budgeting

A schedule is the essential tool that takes a project from script to screen via an actionable plan. The principles and practices of breaking down and scheduling international feature films and television drama will be thoroughly covered during this course.

Working individually on a computer fitted with the current version of Movie Magic software, the aim of this very practical two-week course is to provide attendees with a thorough knowledge of the software package, by breaking down and scheduling an entire film. Leading on naturally from the Scheduling part of the course, the Movie Magic budgeting section further addresses the factors that go into making it work financially. Both the principles and practices of budgeting and cost control for international feature films and television drama will be covered.

The aim of the course is to provide training on software when scheduling and budgeting. Participants are therefore expected to already have prior experience in production scheduling and budgeting.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Apply the principles of budgeting and scheduling to a Movie Magic project
  • Set-up, maintain and update a production budget with Movie Magic
  • Construct and edit a production schedule from a script breakdown in Movie Magic
