I was so inspired by his story "The Long Rain" I want to remake the TV film. We can do it guys!

All it takes is for 70,000 science fiction fans to donate $1.

Please tell friends, colleagues, anybody lets do this! For Bradbury!

Before anyone offers a penny for this, geovane, have you investigated whether the film rights to this story are available to you? And how much you would need to pay to secure them if available?

It's a non-profit film so we do not need rights.

Geo,

Hi Geo,

not wishing to teach grandmothers to suck eggs, but as it happens I make my living from teaching film production. Please be very careful, because it is not true to say "It's a non-profit film so we do not need rights."

It may be that a rightsholder would say, "Because it is not for profit, we will allow you to do this for free, with certain conditions attached" - but that would be their prerogative, and it is not something you can automatically claim.

For your own benefit - and for the benefit of anyone who is going to invest in this venture - you should have "rights clearance" as part of your plan. And since rights clearance COULD cost money, you really ought to budget for it, just in case.

Sorry for the lecture, but this is a message I am repeatedly having to get across to my students.

Great! Then I hope this is what you will do, and that you will meet your Kickstarter target!
