FAQ:
1. How does it work? 

You send us your film -> we check it -> if it meets our selection criteria, we send you License Agreement with the offer -> you make a decision, and if the terms are ok for you – sign the agreement and deliver us all needed materials -> after delivery is complete and accepted, please allow between 3 and 6 month for payment (often – sooner).

2. How do you use the film / the rights? 

Specialized shorts TV channels and niche streaming platforms are our main clients right now. We acquire non-exclusive rights for short films and then resell them to our clients – that’s how we use the rights. Sometimes we also create compilations of short films and sell them.

 

3. What does “non-exclusive” mean?  
When you sell (we buy) non-exclusive rights it means that despite the fact that you’ve sold the rights once, you are free to keep using/selling your films as you like – as many times as you like and wherever you like.

 

4. May I see the template of the license agreement.
