About Above The Line

Above the line costs are items in the budget involved in the creative direction and process of the film. These include the screenwriter (and the rights to their screenplay), director, producers, and principal cast, as well as any related expenditures. The cost of these items are usually set before principle photography begins, so that any complications that arise while filming won't change the above the line total.
