We welcome back entertainment attorney Nicole Papincak for our annual immersive legal workshop. Nicole will cover the 4 Big Cs that every filmmaker should consider before filming: Corporate Formation, including forming your main production entity and your development company; Chain of Title (getting your rights in order); Contracts, such as simple producer-writer agreements or the contracts for hiring crew members; and Clearances.
Once your production has wrapped, you’ll need to have all your paperwork in place including E&O Insurance, cast & crew agreements, clearances, MPAA certificates and guild documentation.
All of this can be overwhelming, but Nicole will put you at ease with her fun approach to navigating these legal minefields.
