Hello, Someone is interested in my novel Different Flags. They want to adapt it for a film class project. What are my rights as the author of the original work? What happens if it goes beyond the classroom? How will/can I get paid? Thank you. Eugenia Renskoff

Can you give us more info?

I take it you are from Argentina. Is the film school that wants to do it in Argentina or in the US?

You might research what Stephen King has allowed students to do with his material. If I remember right, he'll allow them to adapt his material for a dollar but has all sorts of restrictions on it like it can never be sold or earn any money whatsoever, can never be shown outside of the classroom, etc.
