Clearing Rights for Film and TV

Scripts based on real stories, a Warhol poster in the background of a scene, and a protagonist humming a Robbie Williams song - not all rights contained in a script or a film are that obvious. Only a detailed analysis can avoid costintensive pitfalls. Rights clearance is becoming increasingly important, both nationally and internationally. This seminar and workshop offers the practical knowledge to identify and clear rights fast and effectively. Teaching will combine theoretical and practical work on the case including best practices and strategies.

Examples and case studies include:

30 ROCK, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, BORAT, ITALIAN FOR BEGINNERS, WILBUR WANTS TO KILL HIMSELF, DEAR WENDY
