The filmmaker will own the film rights. However, they will agree to provide a royalty-free license to Rent-A-Studio on an exclusive basis for a 5-year period (the “License Period”). At any time during the 5-year license period, PressPlay may elect to distribute the film to third parties. For distributions on third-party platforms, the filmmaker will agree to a revenue share of fifty percent (50%) with the remaining fifty percent (50%) going to Rent-A-Studio. This 50/50 ratio will be based off of revenues remitted from revenue and by the third party to Rent-A-Studio
Upon expiration of the 5-year license period, all rights, including to all going forward revenue share, will revert to the winning filmmaker.
