Description du produit

Revue de presse

"...provides a readable map through the world of legalese and contract negotiations for any filmmaker interested in doing pretty much all his or her own producing legwork....It's an excellent, potentially career-saving resource." - Back Stage

"Filmmakers need to do what they can to make sure that they cover all of their legal bases. The problem is that the task seems so huge and overwhelming, that most of us don't even know where to start. This book does an excellent job of breaking it down for you: what you can do, what you need to do, and what you will need help doing." -Microfilmmaker Magazine

"While reading the book may feel like doing word problem after word problem, there's no denying you're smarter on Page 318 than you were on Page 1. It's an excellent, potentially career-saving resource.” -Sam Thielman, Back Stage Magazine

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Mistakes galore! 24 juin 2017
Par Orlando James - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There are so many spelling and grammatical mistakes! The editor should be ashamed.
I thought the law and contracts were all about precise language. And we've all heard of outcomes that were determined because a contract said "and" instead of "or" and so forth.
So why was such a slipshod job done when proofing this book?
I found a good deal of useful information here, but I trust it all slightly less knowing that it was put out by a person or persons that either don't speak the language well or simply couldn't be bothered to check the work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 like the old dictionaries 22 juillet 2014

If you are already doing some form of video production, relax! This is not about how to set up your shot. It's all about what you're planning, and how you intend to get everything done BEFORE you even take your camera out of the bag. There is an edge that's tabbed in black ink on the side, like the old dictionaries; the idea is that you will be able to look at the back cover, and find your section, then open up in the right part of the book.

Something I thought was rather interesting about this title can be found on page 262. In the grey box, he reminds the reader that while it's typical to have post production assigned a share of the take for a film, that you need to watch out for those contracts that try to sneak in language that assigns the copyright as well...essentially the post production house legally steals your film.

It's also not a boilerplate contract book. This actually breaks down what the elements of a production company is; he goes into how to write language that actually protects the "idea", and the film, so that along the way it can't be wrested from you at distribution.

Another example is on page 92, he goes into the bullet points of Ownership Rights, and asks who is responsible for what part, and in turn-what part does that person own of the finished product you produce. There is also an explanation of why it's so critically important on the larger projects to invest your time, and create a production company to lock it all down.

It's in plain English, and for those with legal exposure or training, you'll be happy to know that where needed, he cites why explicitly, and references the chapter and verse.

So rather than a cookie cutter one size fits all approach, you actually learn what you need to choose what's important to your project, and set things up from the start to keep things aligned with your vision, and establish relationships that are all focused on the bringing of the idea to the screen-without making you feel like you've just sold yourself down the river.

A great read! I've learned a lot about contracting and entertainment law without feeling bogged down by legalese. The book is written in a way that's easy to digest a lot of important (and specific) information and the examples often make me chuckle. I've been recommending it to everyone.

A very well structured book that takes you through the legalities of the producing process from idea conception to distribution. Easy to follow and thorough. It's great to be able to anticipate filmmaking legal concerns ahead of time. The more you're able to know, the better you can control your costs and protect your film. This book really helps that.
