Shout out to all beginner producers! We know your budgets are tight, and talking to a lawyer can be daunting. Sinclair Black, Entertainment Lawyers, is offering up to 24 emerging producer WIFT members a free two-hour session to run through some of the legal basics you need to know as producers. Come and get some tips and tricks that may help avoid some bigger (and costly) legal mistakes...!
Mel Chuter will cover things such as:
Christy Whelan will talk through the basics of music licensing for film and tv – what rights you need, who to get them from and how best to do that.
These are small and intimate sessions, for new producers wanting to ask all those questions about the stuff you’re ‘supposed’ to know. Just be aware that Mel and Christy cannot give out specific advice on matters. The rules governing lawyers require that clients formally engage a lawyer to give rise to a solicitor/client relationship. The session is not a substitute for legal advice and you cannot rely on it as such – if you have a legal matter you need help with you should engage a specialist lawyer.
Presented by Mel Chuter and Christy Whelan of Sinclair Black
