I'm just wondering if there are any self employed, one man agencies out there who think this is a realistic cost breakdown for a job. I understand the costs are all relative depending on the studio location, size etc, but the nuts and bolts are essentially the same.

Speaking from my own experience, I would worry the client would run a country mile as there are a lot of costs to be considered. But, essentially, that is what it takes to create a film from scratch, and we wear ALL the hats. We have to produce the project, create all the pre-production, illustrate, animate, direct and source sound engineers and extra help when needed. It just sounds like a lot of money... or it that the mentality that separates the agencies owners from the one man bands?
Also, kudos to Chris Do. Frank discussions about costs and finances are incredibly helpful.
