Sometimes it’s only when you get to the edit that you realise that there is someone or something on screen for which you may need permission – and you don’t have it. It’s always easier to confront such issues before com[letting principal photography. In this session you will learn how to go about making sure that what you film is what may ultimately be seen by your audience.
Topics covered include:
- Performers’ consents
- Background folk
- Locations – public/private
- Stuff on set
- Incidental inclusion
- Buildings in the background
What you will learn
Understanding the importance of key legal rights for filmmakers and the contracts by which they are bolted together and how to approach the job of protecting their legal interests in their work.
Each segment is one hour long and presented on Zoom software. You will need WiFi to join the class.
