We are living in a generation of creators.

The tools necessary for filmmaking have never been as accessible and affordable as they are today. Consumer equipment, software and online tutorials are abundant and user-friendly — however, there is one component missing: the copyrights that are created when utilizing these tools. And more importantly, how to secure, assign, maintain and protect them so your project can be successfully marketed, distributed or sold.

We want to change that by creating a free resource that provides the information needed to do this. Understanding the chain of title for a film is the single most important thing you need to know when it comes to selling your product. The process of securing rights may seem overwhelming, but when it is presented in a way that is easily understandable, it's actually quite simple.

Chain of title is a building block for the independent filmmaker, and often takes a back seat to creating the content. If done correctly, it adds great value and security to your work and enables you to assign the rights held by your company.

We plan on going through the chain of title and copyrights in a film point by point.  Each one will have a video explanation, first by a lawyer in the United States and Canada  - to explain the legal definition and meaning.  Then by an independent filmmaker on how that information translates to us in the low budget realm - whether you are the one securing the rights, or the one assigning them.

Heading up the project is Jordan Clark, an independent documentary filmmaker and producer. Jordan directed and produced "Bangkok Girl" for $10,000. It broke audience records on CBC in Canada, and has been featured on Kunskapskanalen in Sweden and Netflix in the USA. Most recently he made "The Aswang Phenomenon" which has international distribution in the educational and public market and is used in universities around the world. Jordan has also produced hundreds of television commercial and corporate film during his time with CTV in Canada and as a freelancer.

Jordan spent 3 years as program coordinator in a private film school where he developed and taught lessons on chain of title for the ultra low budget filmmaker. He realized there is a missing link with free online resources available to filmmakers and creators, which is why this project is being created. Rounding out the team is talented animator Denver Jackson and Composer/ Graphic Designer Marc Junker.

NEW GOAL: $20,000

We started this campaign needing $48,000.  Due to the positive exposure we have been receiving by respected filmmaking media, a site sponsor came on board and is covering a huge percentage of our costs.  We thought it fair to have our Indiegogo goal reflect the changes. We still need $20,000 so please help spread the word!
