Film, TV & Theatre

Our film, television and theatre department advises not just on all aspects of the traditional business models and related rights clearance/acquisition, financing and exploitation, but is also able to draw on Russells’ expertise in other media sectors to give clients a broad scope of advice in an age when the worlds of traditional models and the internet, digital telecommunications and ancillary exploitation channels become more entwined.

How We Can Help

We advise our clients on:

  • The structuring and implementation of development and full production finance and alternative investment arrangements
  • The development, protection and exploitation of formats, scripts, screenplays and other underlying rights
  • The acquisition, licensing and disposal of underlying rights
  • Co-production and similar joint venture arrangements
  • All production and post-production contracts
  • All aspects of sale, distribution, licensing and disposal including ancillary rights
  • The clearance of music (both pre-existing and specifically commissioned) within productions
