Lunch & craft
For each live action show, a dollar amount is provided for every assigned crew member, plus two actors and one volunteer:
- $8.00 per head lunch catering for 12 crew members, 2 actors and 1 volunteer (15 people total): $120.00.
- $3.00 per head craft service for 12 crew members, 2 actors and 1 volunteer (15 people total): $45.00.
Therefore, the total allocation for lunch and craft service is $165.00 per show.
The amount of money allocated to each film is a set amount. It does not shrink if the crew gets smaller and it does not increase if you add volunteer crew or actors. This amount is allocated as part of the necessary budget the school provides, based on the scope of the production.
Food budgets are allocated to live action productions only and are considered part of the “Provided Production Costs” because meal time is regulated and crew members are not allowed to leave set.
You may use the total funds for food in any way you wish, as long as it goes only to catering and craft service. This is a “use-it-or-lose-it” budget.
