over budget! :(
No. Really over budget. By like 30%.
This is bad.
On the other hand, it's not like:
- I wrote the script that calls for the locations we need
- I decided how many days I need to rent locations for prep and wrap
- I negotiated the contract that get Tarrytown cops $90/hr working OT shifts.
Which kind of means that a lot of this stuff costs what it costs and the only way for me to cut money out of the budget is to cut items. Maybe I shouldn't get locations on Wednesdays.
Or maybe every Monday, the trucks should just circle the block until some parking opens up.
I realize that all sounds pretty glib and I actually will make the effort to bring some of these things in under budget, but I'm not about to turn in a budget that I'm guaranteed to overspend.
I don't have much to say today. I'm off to read all of your blogs. Hope you have something entertaining for me!
