Lets talk legal
Do you know which sections of the federal / city / state code deal with filming in the bars?
- do I care if the alcohol bottles are clearly identified?
- do I become a "statutory employee" if a bartender who decided to be a part of the film slips and falls? (I say this goes under the bar's WC insurance, and same goes to the bar's liability insurance for any kind of third-party slip and fall.)
- we are filming on the streets and a drunk passerby starts implying we violate his rules for privacy. I just had this actually happen in a bar while storyboarding -- a 70+ guy started to get cute how I don't have the right to. I asked him to call cops if he feels that strongly.
Finally, is there a Q&A say by mayor's office giving me DOs and DONTs?
