Basic Legal Planning for the Producer of Original Programming
or, I Wish I Had Thought of that Before We Started Production
An Interactive Seminar with Ernest Sanchez, Esquire
Tuesday, 27 January 2004
Independent producers face a myriad of legal decisions and challenges in the creation of original programming. Issues of ownership of the final program, all of its elements need be clear from the outset. Also, plans need to be made for the use of the program. It is important to consider how long rights to the program will last, a few years or in perpetuity, and whether the program will be available to listeners, delivered in ways other than radio. Things to consider and plan for include rights to interviews, archival material, music, writing, narration, letters, contributions from other producers, contributions from stations or networks, and more. Ernie Sanchez is one of the most experienced, and most knowledgeable lawyers in the radio system. This seminar could save you many headaches, and many dollars.

Producers Intensive 2003
AIR is pleased to offer complete recordings of two highly popular and practically valuable Intensive sessions.
Savvy Up: The Business Angle on Public Radio
Celeste Wesson - MPR's Marketplace Productions
Marketplace and The Savvy Traveler are always looking for new voices, especially contributors with distinctive voices who 'get' the show. What makes an idea Marketplace-y? What is a "Savvy" story? Bring your pitches, yellow pads and laptops. Find out what clicks with national vehicle producers and helps you produce a successful feature. Also learn how to write for the shows and what production and performance style each is looking for. We hope to work through at least one piece for each vehicle.
Playing at the Margins: Views from Inside & Outside
Jay Allison - Transom.orgNikki Silva / Davia Nelson - Lost & Found Sound
Jonathan Kern - NPR
Peggy Girshman - NPR
Working within the daily boundaries of style and content is vital steady work, but it's not where the excitement is. The hard decisions come, for both producer and acquirer, when we approach the edges. This session will bring together NPR editors with outside producers to talk about where those edges are, how to push them... and each other. Please bring samples of your most provocative work for discussion.
Note: The sessions were recorded onsite for personal use by AIR member attendees David Shih and Jeremiah Moore, respectively. AIR is grateful to David and Jeremiah for making these files available to us.
