Marriott Harrison’s Head of Media, Tony Morris has written The Filmmakers’ Legal Guide which is now available as a digital book for download from Amazon/Kindle and on iTunes.
There is an infinite number of legal matters on which producers seek advice. Nevertheless, certain questions frequently arise: is permission required to use material from a book? Does a contract have to be in writing? May classical music be used in the background of a scene?
The Filmmakers’ Legal Guide addresses the practical legal requirements of those making movies, documentaries, shorts, television programmes and other audio-visual content. Key issues are analysed and explained in a clear and logical manner concentrating on the practical needs of producers. In addition to a description and analysis of the rights to be acquired and consents to be obtained, the Guide includes detailed explanations of the principal contracts necessary for a production. A series of Appendices include examples of a number of commonly used forms of contract.
