I read the following article: http://www.videomaker.com/article/805/
and came up with a question:
People waive their rights once they appear in public and that the filmmaker is protected under the first amendment. However, I interviewed people at a bar or hospital. I have permission from the bar owner, but at this point it’s verbal. Is the bar considered public space?
This might be helpful:
Everyone’s answers have been very helpful. Thank you.
I have another quick question if you don’t mind.
I’m entering my film in the 2007 Chicago International Film Festival and I was wondering if that will ruin my chance of entering the 2008 Sundance (or any other festival for that matter).
Also, let’s suppose I win the 2007 Chicago International Film Festival; is it possible to get a movie deal from a festival lesser known than Sundance? What is your advice? Thanks
