Question by Karan: Are permissions necessary for making short films based on stories from book?
I would like to make a short film based on a story from a book which has a collection of short stories from an author. I might send that short film to film festivals. Should I obtain permission or licenses or pay royalty for making a film out of their story. Or is it just sufficient to give them credit for story? Please let me know.
Answer by Will
Give them credit but if you are going to be making $ off of it then you need permissions and so forth.
