Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I am planning on doing an amateur documentary, involving traveling a bit and doing some interviews and man on the street stuff.
When it comes to interviews, putting people on film, distributing your film (hopefully) and the like, I have no idea what kind of red tape I have to deal with. I know people probably have to sign releases and consent forms, etc, but does it change depending on distribution medium, ie youtube versus small local film festivals? Where should I go to find this information and get these forms?
What other possible difficulties and problems might I encounter in terms of logistics of filming a documentary?
