So, you have a great idea for a script based on this book, article, or story you’ve read, and you already know who you want to be your lead and are ready to start taking this around town. There’s just one problem, you don’t know how to go about doing any of this. Sure, you can ask that actor/director if they’re interested in being attached to your projects, but you have no idea what to do beyond that. Do you need some kind of contract? What are reasonable, standard terms? Should you draft it, or should you hire an attorney?
Well, wonder no more! Roadmap is thrilled to have Sean Pope, Esq. here to teach this Webinar on option, shopping, and attachment agreements!
This 90-Min Webinar Will Cover:
- What is the difference between option, shopping, and attachment agreements
- Why having these agreements is important
- Common problems and mistakes typical of these agreements
- The benefits of having a lawyer helping you navigate through the legalese
