About: Lawyers, tax specialists and producers give straight dope about what the most common legal and accounting mistakes are when setting up an indie film -- war stories about partnerships gone awry, tax credits unclaimed, screwy clearances holding up a sale. Focus is on different kinds of financial partnerships and basic deals for back-end and participation, secondary focus is on Horror Story anecdotes.
