He Leadeth Me Budget

Hello Friends and Family of Redeemer’s Song!

Happy New Year! With the fresh start that every new year provides, the production crew of He Leadeth Me is taking this opportunity to hit the ground running. We have a ton of work to do before the cameras start rolling in June, and you’ll be seeing a lot of us over the next 6 months. We’ll be producing plays, hosting fundraisers and visiting your churches to keep you up to date with our projects.

As many of you know, we are now a 501c3 non profit organization, and all of the proceeds from our events go right back into making more (and better) theater and film to share with you. He Leadeth Me will have – by far – the biggest budget of any project to date. It is important to us, especially considering the size of our proposed budget, to be transparent with how we are spending our money.

We have been putting a ton of thought and prayer into deciding where every dollar goes. This is the first time that our organization will be able to compensate our crew and actors for the work that they complete on set! We also have our eye on renting some really, top-notch gear. We hope that you agree that investing in our people as well as the quality of our product is a wise choice.

Here are the details of our current budget (updated April 2018) :

  • $ 8,000.00  PRODUCTION – includes lights, camera, audio, batteries etc.
  • $ 2,000.00  ADMINISTRATIVE –  includes printing, advertising and fundraising
  • $ 10,000.00  CAST – includes paying stipends to our entire cast
  • $ 14,200.00  CREW – includes paying stipends to our primary & secondary crew and interns
  • $ 9,000.00  HOUSING – includes hotels, travel
  • $ 3,000.00  CRAFT SERVICES – includes food on location
  • $ 4,000.00  LOCATIONS – includes rental fees and damage deposits
  • $ 1,000.00  CONTINGENCY & PETTY CASH 
    Total $49,000 +

We’ll be keeping you up to date as we rent our equipment and confirm  our crew. If you have any question, or if you would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you!
