All production expenses and other incidental cost must be within the total budget, with the director taking a fee of no more than 10% of the total budget. The grant will be paid over in full, as opposed to paying individual invoices. The person submitting a proposal will be responsible for finding a team to work with, including a producer to manage the production and its finances (nothing prevents the director from assuming a producer role). All equipment, locations, crew etc will need to be sourced, managed, and paid for by the production team.
