What's official term for the "details" of a film budget? The "overview" is the topsheet. What are the details? The stuff after the topsheet?

@Muarck,
Aren't you supposed to be the professional screenwriter AKA the film ringer of a2k?

@tsarstepan,
There's a big difference between a screenwriter and a line producer.
And unfortunately, the above the line and below the line refer to different areas the financing will go and they are both covered in both the top sheet and the "details". The topsheet is simply all the details summarized on one sheet.

@Muarck,
Do you possibly mean 'line item'?

@Ragman,
Is there one name for the whole body of the document though, not the individual lines. So you have the Top Sheet and... "the details"?

@Ragman,
Maybe I was thinking there was a term when there really isn't. The best I can come up with is: "breakdown" or as Ragman said: "line item".

@Muarck,
Line item is a common budget term that goes beyond film production. It's a very common term in the congressional budget. That's why I didn't mention it. Thought you were looking for something more film production centric.

@tsarstepan,
Financial statements do come in various levels of detail. The board of directors' version is not much more that an executive summary. Department managers get lots of detail. I'm sure the film industry has a name for their most detailed level, but have no idea what it is called.
