Full Answer

The best way to start a proposal is to write a treatment for your film. A treatment is a short story narrative written in simple language. It describes your film without any technical jargon. From there, you can start working on the other aspects that a proposal needs. In addition to the written document, a film proposal will also include a budget and a sample reel or work-in-progress edit. However, if you have been given a specific proposal format by an industry professional, then you should follow that.

    The perfect caption can be achieved by writing something that provides context and background information on the image as well as an intriguing reason to read the cover story, look at the photograph again and create a better understand of the written material. Readers always look at photographs first and then the caption beneath the photo, so the caption needs to provide a reason for the reader to revisit the photo or move on to the story instead of looking elsewhere.
