Day 4: Doc Campus Masterschool | Potsdam | meeting with Lawyer Dr. Stefan Roll and Producer Simone Baumann
DCM provided a fantastic opportunity to a have half hour meeting with a media lawyer, for free!! We were able to run some questions passed Stefan which has made us feel confident over some small contractual issues and the way we have chosen to run our production. Then after sneaking in some festival forum applications and changing our treatment, 8 of our projects were given a thorough dissection by Simone Baumann who advised on how to try and find finance to meet our budgets, informed us about distributors, and explained the mechanics of pre-sales and commissions from broadcasts.
The evening was finished off with lovely Thai food and some great conversations from the other campus guys’ experiences from around the world.
