Tonight we have a wonderful Lawyer and Producer Mr. Marc Jacobson.
Marc Jacobson grew up in a household surrounded by entertainment industry professionals. In law school, he determined early on that entertainment law could be a fertile ground for his future. As Founding Chairman of the New York State Bar Association Section on Entertainment, Arts & Sports Law, Marc developed a broad business and legal background and built his unique practice by focusing on two passions: film and music.
Today, while still handling sophisticated music publishing and recording transactions, Marc also handles all legal aspects of filmed entertainment for films like “Conviction” (2010) with Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell, “Texasville” (1990) with Jeff Bridges and Cybil Shepard and “All’s Fair” (1989) with George Segal and Sally Kellerman. He is currently Production Counsel to the forthcoming “Back In The Day,” “Inversion,” “Alex and Emmy,” “The Enigma of Benito Cereno” and is Executive Producer and Production Counsel for “Leaves of the Tree” and “Confidence Game.” As an Executive Producer he helped create films like “Junction” (2013), and “The Last Film Festival,” Dennis Hopper’s last live action movie.
