Navigating the Legal Landscape for Filmmakers

How to save your film, your sanity, and – quite possibly – your home.

This brief introduction to a very large, and scary, subject will familiarize you with the two most important concepts in entertainment law: intellectual property (also known as copyright) and contract law.

Since ignorance is no defense before the law, we will de-mystify urban legends concerning:

Copyright Infringement
Deal memos
Licensing : music, stock footage
Liability
And releases
This class will cover all the possible agreements you may need all the way from your film’s development phase, through production and post, to distribution and sales.

Western State Colorado University Screenwriting Bootcamp

Western State Colorado University is offering a 2-week summer intensive for screenwriters taught by the Graduate Program’s Screenwriting Concentration Director JS Mayank.

The intensive has three separate stages.

The first stage focuses on preparation. Participants read required materials, familiarize themselves with the formatting and basic structure, if they haven’t done so previously, and come to the workshop ready to pitch their ideas.

The second stage is the actual eight-day workshop. Each student pitches a story, creates a treatment, character biographies, an outline, and then writes the first act (roughly 30 pages) of the proposed screenplay or TV pilot/spec. This portion is rigorous, with an emphasis on writing, rewriting, critiquing and polishing words on the page.

The third stage focuses on support, including one-on-one meetings with screenwriting faculty to go over future writing plans. Students may also, for an additional fee, register for the three-day Writing the Rockies creative writing conference, which runs directly after the intensive ends, and includes discussions about the business of screenwriting and how to break into the industry.
