Music Law: Copyrighting a Song

Lynda.com - Thu, 03/12/2015 - 20:00
Authored By: Richard Stim

Released On: 3/13/2015

Copyrighting a song is not the easiest process, but it's vital for songwriters. It preserves your legal claims to songs and your ability to monetize them. In this course, Rich Stim provides essential guidance to navigate the process and understand the main language, concepts, and business aspects of music copyright.

Rich starts by defining what a song copyright and a sound recording copyright are—and how they're different. He defines who owns a song, and how to sort out contributions from multiple writers of the same song. Then he explains how to get a copyright using the U.S. Copyright Office's online application process. The course wraps up by discussing possible objections that copyright examiners may have, as well as what to do to maintain your copyright and correct any errors that crop up.

Black-and-White Darkroom Printing Techniques

Lynda.com - Thu, 03/12/2015 - 20:00
Authored By: Konrad Eek

Released On: 3/13/2015

Once you've shot and processed a few rolls of black-and-white film, the next step you can take to explore analog photography is printing that film in your own darkroom. In this course, a follow-up on his Shooting and Processing Black-and-White Film course, photographer Konrad Eek introduces the fundamentals of black-and-white darkroom printing.

First Konrad provides a tour of his own darkroom space, and introduces the key ingredients that dictate how pictures print: paper, exposure, and contrast. He checks a series of images by developing initial test prints, and then explores options for refining the images in the darkroom via cropping, burning and dodging, and adjustments to the development time. When he's finished making prints, Konrad shows how to clean up the darkroom and introduces different paper choices and resources for black-and-white film photographers to explore.

Undeveloped WWII Film Discovered

Lynda.com - Thu, 03/12/2015 - 20:00
Authored By: Levi Bettwieser

Released On: 3/13/2015

Found film offers unique insights into the past, but only if it is carefully preserved. The Rescued Film Project, founded by Levi Bettweiser, is an archive of images that were captured on film between the 1930s and early 2000s. Each image in the archive was rescued from undeveloped rolls of film found in locations all over the world. In this short documentary, Levi processes and restores thirty-one rolls of vintage film shot over seventy years ago by a World War II soldier. Working with vintage film poses special challenges, but Levi carefully catalogues and develops all the rolls in his at-home processing lab, as the story of this one unknown soldier emerges.
