What you'll learn in this film production class:

Is it okay to show incidental logos in my film? If music is playing in the background of a scene, does it need to be licensed? Does my personal release form cover everything? Documentary filmmakers incur many legal questions while developing their project, and rightfully so. This workshop guides filmmakers through an introduction to common legal issues from their terminology to their importance, and offers suggestions on how to navigate them when they arise.

This is an informal resource for independent filmmakers and is not a substitute for legal counsel. For legal advice specific to your needs, we encourage you to seek advice from an attorney.

Topics include:
  • Copyright and Trademark
  • Defamation, Privacy and Publicity
  • Trespass and Misrepresentation
  • Releases and Story Rights
  • Considerations When Licensing Music and Archival Footage
  • Fair Use
  • E&O Insurance
Materials: All you need to bring is yourself! This workshop will offer invaluable knowledge from a working professional in a discussion setting

The price of workshop includes a one year DCTV Membership giving you access to equipment rentals, post production facilities, and discounts on workshops and events.
