Now & Next Application Support: A Guide to Budgets

Recording of a webinar with LUX Scotland Project Coordinator Annie Crabtree and Director Kitty Anderson offering the basics on how to put together a project budget for a short moving image or audio project for Now & Next 2020.

This webinar took place in May 2020 and is aimed at people who may have little experience in putting together budgets for creative projects. The webinar addresses frequently asked questions about the content and formatting of budgets, specifically in the context of the Now & Next commissions, and answers participants questions on how to tailor budgets to suit their creative ideas and objectives.
