The what? Am I sure I didn’t mean “budgeting computer” or “budgeting software”? Yep. I’m sure. There really is a PM101 Budgeting Pencil… and it’s unique since it’s more than 50% eraser.
Why? Because no matter how well one writes a production budget, there will always be the job of rewriting, reducing, revising and refining it over and over again. Like any good script that will undergo several drafts before the camera rolls, so will the budget undergo many iterations before becoming locked.
The PM101 Budgeting Pencil is here to remind you of that element of the budgeting process. You write it. You revise it.
Now don’t let all those iterations create panic or fear and block you from writing the budget in the first place. Let them instead release you from writing the perfect budget on the first pass. So in honour of the budgeting process… and in happy anticipation of the publication of the new edition of my book “Film Production Management 101: Management & Coordination in a Digital Age“… I bring you the one, the only and the little odd… PM101 Budgeting Pencil.
Come and join me on FB at www.facebook.com/DebPatzBooks and earn your chance to win a PM101 Budgeting Pencil for yourself. A random FB fan every month for the next three months will win one. And at very least, it will give you a little chuckle – and that’s a good thing too!
So, until then… just write it. Then revise it. Happy budgeting and see you on FB!
