Can’t Live Without Them…
If you’re stumped on what to do, how much to pay, where to get insurance, and more – here are a few links to places that you can call for information. The process of taking a film to network or cable distribution can be complicated. You will have to upgrade your film so that you have cleared all rights. Your company might need to become a signatory to one or more of the Guilds because your distributor is already a signatory. It is not complicated, it is not expensive, but if you don’t know what you’re doing then it might end up costing you more than it should. So don’t be afraid to make phone calls and query someone for help. And if you need some help from another producer – give me a call!
