Surprisingly Most Profitable Oscars Movies of 2015

Dear Professor Savings fans,

    The 2015 Oscars were full of highlights and according to some critics low lights.  Before we talk about the money side of making movies, watch the recap above for Full Show and Recap + Highlights of the 2015 Oscars.

 

While there are many aspiring actors, actresses, and film makers, few stop to understand the money side of film making.

The process of development, pre production, production, post production, distribution, and the marketing side.

Development is the state in which ideas for the film are created, gathered, and discussed.  The screenplay is written and financing for the project has to be greenlit for the project to move on to the next phase.

Preproduction phase preparations are made for the shoot.  This is when the cast and film crew are assembled.  Locations are build and selected.

Production is when filming takes place.

Post production is when the sound, images, and visual effects are edited and put together.

Distribution is the finished film when it is distributed in movie theatre.

Take note that there is also a predetermined marketing budget for both online and offline marketing ads.  View a budget sheet from io9.com for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix released in July 2007.
