Some of the pictures I've done have been combinations of private financing and the selling off of territories. It works as follows. Let's say the picture is budgeted at $10 million of this. Three million is in what we call above the line costs. Property director, producer, writer, actor. The other seven million is for below the line costs. This is everything else sets locations, trucks, studio rental location and studio cruise catering, legal fees, which are enormous music editing, mixing equipment, equipment, rental, living expenses, set dressing, furniture, curtains, plants, etcetera. Below the line, in other words, is the cost of the physical production of the movie.
