The Solomon Bunch Legal Stuff

Had lunch today with Joe Hardy of Hardy Law (an entertainment attorney) to discuss all of the legal bases we need to cover for our film. Joe was extremely helpful and I feel confident that we are headed in the right direction. It is amazing how many aspects of filmmaking require legal consideration. There are issues involving insurance, financing, intellectual property, incorporation and labor laws. There are also agreements with each person or organization involved in the production--each with its own special set of considerations. He recommended, based on our budget, that we find whatever forms are available online and then simply have them reviewed rather than starting from scratch on everything. Sounds good to me. Anything to save money gets my vote.
