GREEN SCREEN & VFX

VFX Green Screen
Plates, background elements, lighting vectors, parallax, perspective and the skill of melding images with practical elements on set. We always look at content with an eye towards what works creatively and technically.

FAIR USE

Fair Use Scales Justice
Fair Use is becoming more and more relied upon within certain productions. I have intimate experience with Fair Use issues, not just the legal issues but the practical issues and pitfalls that arise when a production goes down this path.

MUSIC

Music Icon Treble Clef
Synchronization and Master Recording Rights can be the toughest clearance to obtain. Free music abounds and what is Creative Commons? We can steer you to quality production music and audio sources. Cue Sheets easily handled.

The Full Clearance Process

Production oriented, I keep all the parts moving, hit deadlines and fulfill every step of researching, clearing and delivering the element and legal backup.
