The Nuts & Bolts of Screenwriter Agreements
With Gary G. Goldberger, Esq.

There are many different kinds of writer deals made: film, TV, established writer, new writer, guild, non-guild, etc. In this workshop, speaker Gary G. Goldberger will discuss and analyze the deal points involved in different kinds of agreements between writers and producers, from the perspective of both writers and producers.

Agreements and talking points include submission agreements, representation agreements, option/purchase agreements, for-hire writing agreements, collaboration agreements, source materials, copyright registration, and rights retention & reversion.

Gary G. Goldberger has operated a solo practice focused on transactional entertainment law, new media law, and general business law, since 2007. Prior to this, he was an independent producer and a consultant to companies in the arena of international and domestic television distribution. During that time, he was the executive producer of four movies that have been distributed internationally. Gary was also the Executive Vice President of Carlton America, an international television production and distribution company. He headed the business affairs department of the company and acted as General Counsel, participated in international television markets, and was an executive producer or co-producer on many television movies.

These workshops are made possible, in part, from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission; The City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs; and the California Community Foundation.  Additional support provided by the California Arts Council.
