This is what I start my prospects with…during the consultation I use a check list and take notes. The quote is actually 3 quotes ‘levels’ (bronze silver gold) and, from my experience, make sure your bronze is profitable because many customers ask for bronze and want you to throw in stuff from the other list.

STEP 2 Pre-Production: When you give us the OK we schedule the project and the gathering of the assets needed, such as scripts, talent, music, locations and produce storyboards. At that time
you will be required to pay 50% of the agreed upon production price,

**What this means is, sometimes people want to use copyright materials
in their production. The right to use those material assets, location
fees etc. must be secured before production can begin. Essentially you
pay for the production asset and/or the expenses involved in the
collection of the asset.
