DCTV Presents Legal Clinic with Innes Smolansky:

Making an independent film today requires more than a creative vision. Equally important is the filmmaker's understanding of the business and legal aspects of the filmmaking process.

Join us as entertainment attorney Innes Smolansky & special industry guests lead this highly informative seminar that will cover: forming a legal entity and getting adequate insurance coverage; structuring deals with crew and talent without jeopardizing your financing deals; securing rights and clearances; how to get a clear chain of title; as well as work for hire agreements, licensing agreements, and independent contractor agreements.

Attendees will leave this seminar with sample agreements and useful legal clauses.

During the initial stages of a film's development, ideas are turned into scripts, people are turned into characters, and the idea of a film as property first takes shape. No matter the type of production a filmmaker seeks to make, in order for a film to be picked up by a distributor, the filmmaker must have the legal right to tell a subject's life story.

Join us as entertainment attorney Innes Smolansky leads this seminar that will explore the main points producers need to think through when negotiating Life Rights deals, including: asking for rights to produce one film or multiple, narrative or documentary, etc.; consultation services and film publicity services; getting the rights from the estate if the main subject is deceased; optimal payment structure; the term of the agreement; retaining producer attachment for future productions involving your subject, and much more.

Innes Smolansky is a New York based entertainment attorney specializing in representing producers, production companies, writers, authors, directors, performers and composers in independent motion picture production, documentaries, television and business and personal management deals. Her extensive and wide-ranging experience in drafting, reviewing, negotiating and counseling clients on development, financing, production, talent, employment, music, management and distribution deals has earned her a reputation as a skilled, savvy, and well-respected attorney in the entertainment industry.

Ms. Smolansky was born in St. Petersburg Russia and studied at Brown University (B.A. magna cum laude); University of Pennsylvania (J.D.); University of Paris X (Diploma D'Etude Juridique Europeenes).
