Negative cost Information

From Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negative_cost

Negative cost is the net expense to produce and shoot a film, excluding such expenditures as distribution and promotion. [1]

Low-budget movies, for example The Blair Witch Project, can have promotional expenses that are much larger than the negative cost. [2]

The term comes from the costs up to the production of the final negative.
