Film & Television

Before making its way to the screen, the typical project will likely encounter issues relating to story rights, copyright registration and licensing, finance, and staff and talent contracting.  The same holds true for documentarians as does for commercial filmmakers.  It is imperative that you retain experienced counsel to ensure that you are not crushed on your way to the large or small screen.

Many Vermonters would be surprised to find a local attorney with film and television experience.  However, after ten years away I returned to Vermont to practice in a more family friendly atmosphere.  With the move, I bring the entertainment industry contacts I developed in New York.  I have brokered story rights, negotiated finance deals, and drafted contracts for independent contractors, composers, and talent.  By contacting me, you are taking the first step towards ensuring you thrive in your new endeavor.
