I will be hosting several AMAs on Reddit under the user name EntertainmentAttny in what, I hope, will be the first of many AMAs as an entertainment attorney. First will be on /r/Filmmakers and then likely /r/Screenwriting at some point. Reddit could use the input from a good Los Angeles based entertainment attorney!
Hopefully we can cover the importance of having strong legal representation on independent film productions, inform up and coming filmmakers/screenwriters/talent of their rights, discuss how the current independent film market works, and explain how to properly (and legally) raise funds for entertainment projects.
Hope to see you all there.
