"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."
