SQ Lab: Budgeting Your Game, with Vee Pendergrast

This two hour session is made for games practitioners to learn best practice for delivering a project budget.

Vee Pendergrast will deliver you the know-how on topics such as; How much in-kind work or capital should you put into a project before applying for funding? What budget lines should you have and what dollar amounts should you allocate? How do you budget your own labour? Plus more.

Submitting a budget is part of the Screen Queensland Games Finance application (which is now a rolling fund – apply anytime for up to $50,000). Don’t miss this event, to make your application stronger.
