Filmmaker's Book is Updated for Social Media and Changing Economy

Rapid changes in the economy and within social media has prompted New Hampshire entertainment attorney and Hamline University Law Professor Jon Garon to substantially update his popular filmmaker's handbook, The Independent Filmmaker's Law and Business Guide: Financing, Shooting, and Distributing Independent and Digital Films, to address strategies for financing film, completing principal photography, and obtaining distribution.

Newly updated and expanded, this second edition explores concepts such as executing a digital distribution strategy through the use of YouTube and "webisodes," the importance of international distribution, and legal issues particular to documentaries. Six handy appendixes provide sample contracts, copyright circulars, Documentary Filmmakers' Statement of Best Practices in Fair Use, studio contact information, and more.
