Hi Workshoppers,

 

Happy New Year!

 

Can anyone suggest a good lawyer (preferably but not necessarily based in San Francisco) who has experience negotiating a contract with ITVS for Open Call funding?

 

Any advice/info/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Warmest Regards,

Sam

Hi Sam.

I'm based in San Francisco too and while I've worked with another attorney in NY previously, I recently started working with George Rush.  He's a great attorney in the documentary world and has experience dealing with ITVS on several fronts, so I'd heartily recommend working with him.  Plus he's also a good guy, so that is always a nice combo.

Feel free to let him know that I recommended that you contact him and his email is: george@gmrush.com

This is great!  Thank you.  I'll let you know if I end up meeting with him for sure.  Also, hope to meet you in person some time.

 

Warmest Wishes,

Hi, Sam. I used Dorothy Richardson to negotiate my contract with ITVS Open Call (congrats on getting the funding, btw!). She's based in Los Angeles, but can work remotely with you. Here's her information:

She's very affordable, easy to work with, and has experience dealing with ITVS contracts (particularly if you already have other funders on board.) She's actually worked with 2 other Producer Academy Alums as well...

 

Best,

Thanks, Kathy.  I appreciate the feedback.  Also, I'm sitting in my SF office and my office-mate, Leah Wolchok, saw your photo on my computer and says to say hello! ;)

When I am totally confused Mike has the answer in one sentence. He reviewed R&D contracts with ITVS and PIC for us last year. Good luck!
