Utilizing Rights And Clearances For Your Production

The question of rights and clearances often comes up in many different aspects of our work. Questions like, when do we need to get clearance, how do you find out who has the rights and when is something fair use are common questions and issues we all run up against. To help explain and clarify how we should be using rights and clearances in our productions we are thrilled to have internationally known specialist in Film Research, Rights and Clearances, Barbara Gregson, sharing her expertise with us at our September 13th meeting.

Some of the projects Barbara’s worked on include: the HBO documentary “The Defiant Ones” about Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, “Original Sin: Sex”, CNN’s “The Seventies”, “Straight Outta Compton”, “Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey”, “His Way”, “The Harvey Weinstein Project”, “The Art of the Steal”, “Why We Laugh”, “Spine Tingler: The William Castle Story”, “Hollywood Chinese”, “Golda’s Balcony”, “Peyote to LSD”, “The Boomer Century”, “This Film is Not Yet Rated”, “The Last Mogul”, “Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession” and “The Kid Stays in the Picture”.

Barbara has been a guest lecturer for the Producers Guild of America, the International Documentary Association and USC School of Cinema, UCLA Department of Film and Television, California State University Northridge and UCLA Extension. She has served on the Board of Directors of the International Documentary Association, the American Association of Producers and is a member of the Producers Guild of America, the Federation of Commercial and Audiovisual Libraries (FOCAL), Women in Film and CLEAR, in which she currently serves as Co-Executive Director.
