Keep as many of your film’s rights as you can in-house…

Indies needlessly tie up their films in a thicket of legal boilerplate over long periods of time without getting much in return, especially in the short-term. They aren’t able to extricate themselves from shoddy lackluster deals that aren’t working for them and their production, and by the time their film’s rights revert back to them after a series of years, the buzz has long-since dissipated, key marketing windows have long-since passed, and they’re well-entrenched into their subsequent productions in other locations for any of this to matter anymore. The production, in many cases, basically becomes a high-priced write-off.
