One of the most challenging aspects of filmmaking can be working through the legal issues that confront producers as they move from development to production to distribution. This class offers participants an overview of the basic legal concepts producers need to know, and will include discussions about financing, chain of title, common production contracts, rights clearances, and the legal mechanics involved in film distribution. Coverage of practical topics related to choosing the right attorney for a project and what to expect when working with lawyers will help students better prepare to get the most out of the legal line item in any budget.
