For Budgeting (Module One), topics covered include a discussion of Construction, Graphics, Labour, and supply budgets, Location Budgets vs. Studio Budgets, effective script breakdowns, and tracking your budget. 

 In the Scheduling Module, the class will cover timelines, schedules and flow charts for different stages of production, the impact of the Shooting Schedule on flow charts, tracking your schedule, and how changes will impact your schedule and timelines.
