Basic Legal Contracts
March 30 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Part of the Producer's Foundation Certificate
As a film producer, you'll have to understand, negotiate and oversee basic legal contracts. Once your film is finished and ready to be sold, you'll have to show the “chain of title” to any prospective film buyer. But if you fail to do this, you'll never be able to sell your film.
As an older student, I found the whole course very worthwhile. Five days after finishing the course; I'm now in the process of producing my first two projects.
In this evening crash course, the basic contracts for screenwriter, director and actors are explained. View it as health insurance for filmmakers!
- Key negotiation points explained
- Preparing and maintaining your contracts
This class is designed to answer basic questions about film contracts and can be taken on its own or as part of the Producer's Foundation Certificate.
