I was wondering if anyone has dealt with this (and the search function for the boards doesn't seem to be working).
I'm trying to license a cover of a song for my film. I read that you can't just acquire the right to use the song whenever and wherever you want. I'm planning on showing my film at festivals but I don't know how many festivals or how many times the film would be showing at these festivals.
I'm just wondering if I should wait until the film is pretty much done before I figure all of this out? The scene is a montage and I'm planning each shot in synch with what's happening in the song so...what happens if I can't get the song? I don't want to get stuck without the proper song to fit the context of what is happening in the story :/
