First Lieutenant
First lieutenant
First lieutenant
is a commissioned officer military rank in many armed forces and, in some forces, an appointment. The rank of lieutenant has different meanings in different military formations (see comparative military ranks), but the majority of cases it is common for it to be sub-divided into a senior (first lieutenant) and junior (second lieutenant) rank. The NATO equivalent rank for land force officers is OF-1 rank. In navies, while certain rank insignia may carry the name: "lieutenant", the term may also be used to relate to a particular post or duty, rather than a rank.Contents1 United Kingdom1.1 British Army 1.2 Royal Navy2 United States2.1 U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force 2.2 U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard 2.3 U.S

Production Budget
A film production budget determines how much money will be spent on the entire film project. It involves the identification and estimation of cost items for each phase of filmmaking (development, pre-production, production, post-production and distribution). The budget structure is normally split into "above-the-line" (creative) and "below-the-line" (technical) costs. Production budget may also refer to a budget set by a business for how many units of a product will be produced.[1] See also[edit]Film budgeting Television crew BudgetReferences[edit]Film Budgeting by Ralph S.
