Employment Issues for Filmmakers
Lights, camera, action! Except the electricians are on strike, the camera crew is taking a two-hour lunch break, and your star actor refuses to leave his trailer. Every filmmaker has experienced the challenge of coordinating and managing the wide array of personnel it takes to create a film. Whether it is the star talent, the set technicians or a legion of extras, managing all roles it takes to make a film can certainly seem overwhelming.
In Employment Issues for Filmmakers, Seattle based attorneys Matt Hooper and Janelle Milodragovich, will provide an overview of the common issues that face filmmakers on projects of all sizes from big budget to small independent films, and practical tips on how to solve them. These include industry specific issues such as dealing with actors and unions (Teamsters, SAG, etc.) as well as more traditional employment issues that all employers must consider. It takes great people to make a great film, and proactively addressing employment issues can help ensure you as the filmmaker get the right people for the right part.
