In broad terms, the “negative costs” of feature films are what it takes to pay for talent, labor, materials, and effects, in order to produce a film. Additional costs are incurred for prints, advertising, marketing, and promotion. Film budgets are determined by what the market will bear to purchase a film; once completed. In order to deliver a film within its budget, many costs may be deferred for payment at a later date or be paid out of the revenues generated by the film once it is distributed. In many cases, a producer may defer his/her own production fee, in order to meet the stipulated budget. The hard costs of physically producing a film vary dramatically; depending on the film.
