A crowd of filmmakers and attorneys gathered for a legal workshop on Tuesday, September 22nd.
The TriFilm Society hosted the legal workshop in collaboration with Shelia A. Huggins and Triangle ArtWorks to help filmmakers find answers to questions about release forms.
The workshop covered:
- Artwork releases
- Crowd releases
- Depiction releases
- Extra releases
- Location releases
- Minor releases
- Product releases
- Still photo releases
Attendees asked great questions about situations they’ve encountered, how to handle aspects of the work their doing, and ways to prepare for upcoming shoots. Many filmmakers commented on how badly they needed these answers years ago, and how wonderful it was to finally have more information.
We received such great feedback about the workshop. As a result, we may collaborate with Triangle ArtWorks again to handle other legal aspects of filmmaking.
If you have specific questions you would like answered, please use the comments below. We may include it in the next workshop.
No Film School started collecting a massive list of upcoming film grant lists last year, and we’re so grateful for it. The list is a great summary of what’s coming up so it’s easy to remember all of the granting opportunities available. Check out the Fall 2015 list here.
Are you applying for grants? What questions do you have about the process?

Home Movie Day is happening in Raleigh, N.C., from 1:00-4:00 PM, on Saturday, October 17, 2015. It is free and open to the public.
What is home movie day?
It’s a great way to find out what’s on that old reel, geek out about the changes in film technology, and watch pieces of our cultural history on the big screen.
Here’s how the Center for Home Movies describes it:
Home Movie Day is a celebration of amateur films and filmmaking held annually at many local venues worldwide.
Home Movie Day events provide the opportunity for individuals and families to see and share their own home movies with an audience of their community, and to see their neighbors’ in turn.
It’s a chance to discover why to care about these films and to learn how best to care for them.
Skip Elsheimer, a film archivist and one of the directors of the Center for Home Movies, was recently interviewed for CBS Sunday Morning. The piece featured the Home Movie Day in Durham, N.C. (Click here to watch the interview.)
Here’s more info about Home Movie Day, via A/V Geeks:
What can I do?
It’s simple: rifle through your attics, dig through your closets, call up Grandma, and search out your family’s home movies and bring an 8mm, Super8mm, 16mm film, VHS and Video8/Hi8 video tapes (sorry, no slides) to the nearest Home Movie Day event on October 17th to see it projected. Or just show up and watch the films of others. It’s not just historically significant – it’s fun!
Because they will happen in communities across the globe, HOME MOVIE DAY events and screenings can focus on local and family histories, taking us back to a time when Main Street was bustling and the beehive hair-do was all the rage, with images of people we may know or resemble. Home movies are the essential record of our past, and they are among the most authoritative documents of times gone by.
Did you know that your original films can long outlast a DVD or video tape transfer, if you properly take care of them? Don’t throw your films away!
Home Movie Day will also provide the opportunity for people to learn about the long-term benefits of film versus video. Motion picture archivists will be on hand to tell you how to properly store your films and plan for their future.
Home Movie Day is the perfect opportunity to finally figure out what’s on the mystery reel that’s sitting around your house.
So if you have old mystery reels and want to see what’s on them, pack them up and come to the Home Movie Day in Raleigh, N.C., on Saturday, October 17th.
