You have a vision and a talented team behind you. You want as much money on the screen as possible, so you decide to manage the checkbook yourself. After all, isn't having all those accounting people just for big pictures? Let me ask you, what happens when you bring in an inexperienced director? Reshoots, extra work in post, frustrated talent. It costs you time and money. The same with your back office. An experienced back office will set your
project up by negotiating favorable rates with vendors, make sure you operate to get the largest film tax credit you can, and create efficiencies so you actually do put as much money as you can on the screen.
