This workshop is made possible in partnership with the City of San Diego Economic Development Department.

Here's a link to the KPBS Explore Program page.

About the discussion

What legal issues might come up during pre-production, principal photography, and post-production? What kind of things should you be thinking about before you hire the crew, actors, editors and other creators? What kind of contracts are involved at each stage? How does copyright protect your work, how does it protect the work of others? How do you use other artists' music in your production, and what steps do you need to take to properly do so? We’ll answer these questions and also leave plenty of time for Q&A.

Student Fellow Alexandra Inman had this to say about the workshops: 

"I loved having the opportunity to speak to the KPBS audience! We were able to provide them with basic copyright and licensing information to help them as they move forward with their productions and provide them with some peace of mind that they could navigate their projects within the boundaries of the law. They also present with the most interesting legal questions which helps prepare me for working directly with clients as I move forward in my career. Creatives like them are one of the major reasons why I love working at New Media Rights!"
