A budget is simply a financial plan for a period of time, expressed in income (money in) and expenses (money out). Budgets can also be incredibly intimidating, especially if you are new to producing. In the arts, a budget is a powerful tool. A budget can tell a story about your project, your goals, and your values. It can help you, or hinder you, in creating your art in the way you want.
