Description
About Basic Legal Contracts for Filmmakers
Once your film is finished and ready to be sold, you will have to show the “chain of title” to any prospective film buyer. If you fail to do this you will never be able to sell your film. This class is all about the basic legal contracts for filmmakers. This evening class is designed to answer fundamental questions about the rights attaching to a film and its component parts and the contracts required to acquire, clear and protect those rights. View it as vital health insurance for filmmakers!
