I threw together a rough spreadsheet to give me an idea of exactly how much of the B.O.R. is eaten up by film distribution, dependent on variables.

I was wondering if you guys could take a look and tell me what you think. Way off? Kinda close? I need more variables?

Please remember, this is just a rough estimate. Thanks.

You can find it here http://www.homeblurbs.com/distribution.xls

Feel free to change the variables around!

BTW, if it asks for a username/password, just hit cancel.

Main thing I see missing is "overhead" expenses, although I get the idea you are just trying to get a 'film based' picture of income/expense. Still, a great deal of expense is in overhead of payroll, electric, rent/mortgage, etc.

booker seemed high/ guarantee + advance was way high/ shipping is more like 38.00 average/ per tik sales price is too high/ and you need all the rest of the overhead.

Thanks for having a look, guys. I realize there's a lot of overhead to account for as well, but I was just trying to get a rough estimate of what kind of money I'd have available for payroll, insurance, rent, supplies, etc. Thanks again!

Greetings all and not just Young E. I heard from more than a few about my numbers. Keep in mind: I am not referring to specific arrangements or quotes or costs. I try very hard to generalize and average so that my #'s apply to all. I.E. booking: if your booker provides a lot of services and you need a lot of handholding it will cost you more. If you are handling trailers and materials, payments, and you don't need movie biz 101 every 3 minutes it will cost you less. If you live in Butte Fork, Idaho (of Houlton, Maine) your shipping costs will be higher than NYC. But not your lease! Numbers apply directly to the situation. To be exact they have to be formulated with you and your theatre in mind. I.E. My theatre lease is 650.00 per month heat included for 2 screens. However, I had to put 1/4 million into it. So don't use my lease figures for estimating your lease costs. Capiche?
