Event Details

How do you legally use music and footage from other sources?

Learn the ins and outs of music and footage licensing from this panel of experts:


Sascha Ciezata, Filmmaker
Sasha has made a name for himself with his quirky lo-fi iPhone animations. In 2010 he made a short film using audio of David Lynch talking about an absurd meeting with George Lucas. The video became an instant success, bringing acclaim from Lucas, Lynch and other luminaries. All was going great until an obscure organization claimed ownership of the audio and caused the animation to be removed from the internet, spurring a debate over the nature of creativity and ownership

George specializes in a full range of services in the entertainment and intellectual property law with emphasis in independent film. George also provides distribution advisory services on a case by case basis.
