I also agree about this forum, is an excellent source of information. I have a couple of mentors (film professors in the university) which I discuss my ideas and some projects. They review my scripts, give me recommendations and put me in contact with other people. As important as their advice are I consider that the most important mentor is the legal counselor. I don’t make any serious project without consulting the legal counselor because they put all the good/bad things that could happen on the table with no hard feelings. They will tell you exactly what you need (legally of course) so you will not get in trouble and they don’t care if you need a 3ccd camera or some $1000 lights, they will tell you to insured your camera and insured your talent just in case the $1000 lights falls on their head. Right now I’m working on a serious project which there are many legal stuff that are driving me crazy, but in the end it will be well worth.
