large players - companies with a 100 people or so scattered around the
country in specialized markets. The only larger ones are the guys
doing meetings and incentive travel.
on a doc. that just moved up here. I'm excited to be here and looking
to do good work. I'm from Austin and am very interested in music/
concert/musician documentaries. Also, live video for shows too. I work
with both Avid and FCP focusing on work with HD.
Currently, we are looking for an empty space to set-up in. The sooner
the better. Something in Manhattan, with internet access, and 24/7
access. If anyone knows anything please let me know. Thanks guys and
good luck!! CB
New York...although there are numerous New York members who could
probably make recommendations on space.
documentary. I have done some historical biographies before. I like
historical documentation, and I will be doing a short documentary
about a local historic business and building. I believe the business
will be going on, but the building will be coming down to make way for
condos in the near future. I am hoping that this experience will lead
to more documentaries in the future. I found this website while I was
doing a search for documentary release forms. I am sure I will be
able to learn a lot from this forum. Thanks, Tara
anywhere near nashville, i'll be coming down your way for the festival
Knoxville called Tiptoe which stands for Tennessee Independent
Production and Talent Organization East. It is a local nonprofit.
They meet once a month, so I will be going to my first meeting Jan.
31. I am sure I will find out about different festivals and more
about the industry. There is a Secret City Film Festival in nearby
Oak Ridge TN. I believe that occurs during late summer. I have met
with the local film commissiioner here, and that was an eye opening
experience. One thing that he told me is that I need to make sure I
get all rights to my documentary. Would that be called an
"assignment of copyright" contract. I have been searching for what I
might need, but I have not found it yet. Could you possibly lead me
in the right direction. I have an initial meeting with the owner of
the building next Thursday. The film commissioner also told me that
when I finish the production, I need to send the master copy to
myself registered mail. When I receive it...he said not to open it
but to put it in a safe deposit box unopened and leave it there. He
said that would help with the copyright. Anyway, sorry to go on for
so long....just thought I would share that info.
you complete a film (not write a script which is somewhat applies to
his/her answer) simply put a copyright notice (c)2006 Tara Bush in the
end credits. You can protect yourself further by registering the film
with the US copyright office - go to their website - fill out the one
page form - send in a copy of the film/dvd/vhs with the fee ($30).
There are separate legal issues regarding permissions to make a film
about someone or a business entity. There are good books available
about making documentary films and the issues involved.
"Making Documentary Films and Reality Videos." It has been a big
help. I will keep on reading and looking into other books.
