Whether you are producing your first film using your own resources, benefiting from your very first grant, or embarking on a major production, the rules of copyright remain the same. The responsibility is up to you and your team to get familiarized with them so that you don't inadvertently break the rules, or on the flip side; to protect your own intellectual property from less-than honest souls.


How are licenses obtained for the use of original music, archival images or how do we even verify the status of royalty-free material? How can we give the right credits and mentions to all of the project’s contributors without the risk of getting it wrong? What are our possible recourses in case of theft of our work?

...These are just some of the many (and necessary) questions that may frighten artists, but to which having the answers is imperative in order to respect the film production system and your own rights.


Vanessa will help to break down this overwhelming burden in presenting the concepts around copyright, pertaining more specifically to Canadian laws, as she highlights the main principles and exceptions that will give you a good foundation to continue pursuing your artistic practices. The unique world of stop motion animation will be explored in more precise depth and examples will be provided if applicable. Clear away the mystery and uncertainty and learn straight from this seasoned arts & entertainment world expert!


Conference presented in French, estimated duration of 60 minutes.
