Presentation: contracts, copyright and clearances

If the words ‘contract’ and ‘clearance’ keep you up at night, you’re not alone. But knowledge is the key to allaying one’s fears, and understanding this essential and oft-overlooked part of the filmmaking process will give you peace of mind and offer protection for your film and company.

During this 90-minute presentation, lawyer Justin Koo will guide you through the main types of contracts needed for a project, help you navigate the legal processes involved in film production and touch on some critical dos and don’ts.
