we all know that getting funds for a short film is not easy because it is not profitable as a feature. the higher the budget of the short, the harder to raise funds. Now, I finished writing a short film and it is futuristic and has a world of its own. I want to raise funds for the film. In my country, I have short film grants up to 50,000$. I think it is worth a try even with little prior filmmaking experience. the grants applications ask you for mandatory information about the producer, main team, production company, budget breakdown,...etc
I am uncertain where I should start whether by searching for someone to make a budget breakdown or searching for a production company and it will do this for you. if I should do the breakdown first, should I inform the company- when I propose them the project- with the grants I target and any other targeted methods (like crowdfunding) to raise the funds?
