It is hard to place this chapter about funding after production because of course it will go side by side. For new filmmakers you are often shooting a few scenes to make a short 10-minute pitch reel possibly before you have raised any funding. You will probably be looking to fundraise after you’ve shot a few scenes, so that you can make a trailer for your grant applications and pitching purposes or even crowdfunding (Kickstarter, etc.) to help raise money.
