Michael Singh is a Los Angeles, California based filmmaker. New Media Rights has represented Michael on a variety of legal issues with his film Valentino's Ghost. Valentino's Ghost is an insightful and important film, but the film's story itself is an inspiring one. Michael's film rose from a little known, bootstrap documentary, to qualifying for Oscar consideration, screening at film festivals around the world, and receiving rave reviews from the New York Times, Hollywood Reporter, LA Times, and others.
"Without New Media Rights, my latest film would have been in jeopardy. Instead, it won a standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival, and at IDFA (International Documentary Festival Amsterdam), and is designated a New York Times CRITICS' PICK. It has also qualified for Oscar® consideration.
But back when my team and I were obscure and struggling, I couldn't afford society prices for counsel, and needed an attorney's opinion on many fronts. My documentary is a research/educational/study "essay film," in which several world-class experts deconstruct and analyze various images from all variety of media. Fair Use allows us to include these short clips throughout the film. Getting opinions on Fair Use, creating legal documents, obtaining last minute advice on strategy or bargaining situations, whenever I needed complex help or simple assistance, NMR was there for me."
My next film may not be so complex, but I have already engaged NMR's services to draw up a contract for me, regarding that project. The quality of NMR's work has been superb, so I'm looking forward to reading what they write for me. I have recommended and will continue to recommend NMR to all documentary filmmakers who ask me for referrals.
I cannot imagine a better outfit."
