Post Copyright and Product placement HELP!
Hey all!
I currently working on a a full length feature and were getting ready to film a scene inside of a gas station, where there are some thugs trashing a store. It's nearly impossible to get any shots in there without there being product placements like Coke, Pepsi, Funions, Doritos, things like that. Is there a way to film this scene and yet still sell the DVD someday without getting sued? I would love any help and advice! Thanks Guys!

I could be wrong, and probably am, but I think as long as no product name or logo is displayed too prominently it's acceptable. Might just shy away from showing billboards or product displays or anything too overt.

Yeah, I don't think you need to worry too much. I doubt big companies such as Coca Cola would bother trying to sue an independent film.
