I think this is the right place for this.
I'll be shooting a short film this summer. I'm building a set in my apt. It's great fun and it'll be cool.
But I need to take seriously the 1/1,000,000 freak accidents. I take safety very seriously; I'll have a guy on-set who's only gig is keep an eye on safety.
Mind you, this is a teensy weensy production, a homemade effort.
But lotsa things can happen. I'll be using a fog machine for a little bit---what if an actor's asthma is activated or an unknown allergy and 911 gotta be called...tripping, falling etc
As careful as I can be, I think I need an indemnifying agreement signed by all participants, no?
Anyone know how to do that properly? Must it be done through a lawyer, or is a piece of paper that I compose sufficient?
