The American Bar Association's Legal Guide to Independent Filmmaking is the authoritative handbook you need to lead you through the legal morass of producing an independent film, from the moment you get the crazy idea to do such a thing, through financing, development, principal photography, distribution, and the too-often overlooked subject of delivery. Each chapter contains a general road map for the phase of filmmaking covered by that chapter, including the relevant forms and contracts, which come with plenty of explanatory info and some select negotiating Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section.

This Legal Guide to Independent Filmmaking is perfect for entertainment and intellectual property lawyers; art, design, trade, and law schools; and burgeoning artists with an idea, in need of a guide to get them to inception. It s a practical, prescriptive form book for legal professionals and burgeoning filmmakers and includes employment and nondisclosure agreements and licensing deals you'll need.
