Egor Konchalovsky won PAL “court principle.”
Winter 2015 filmmaker Egor Konchalovsky has filed a lawsuit against the novice kinematografist Mikhail Dovzhenko for the fact that he was shot in his project of Yegor without permission and salary. As told the press Konchalovsky, a new project Dovzhenko was presented to him as an “Amateur”. Imagine the surprise of Yegor, when the film was shown at major film festivals, and pictures Konchalovsky, who played the role of the second plan, the whole decorated promotional products – CDs, posters.
Now Michael must pay to the representative of the acting dynasty of compensation in the amount of 300 thousand rubles (200 thousand rubles for illegal use of his image in the movie “the shredder” and 100 thousand for moral damage).
“The amount here is not important, it’s the principle, – says the press Egor Andreevich. – First, Mikhail Dovzhenko’s just a partier. When we worked, I thought: well, the guy trains. Maybe will go to the film Institute, though the series will be to remove. Secondly, why would I work for free. Don’t remember how we discussed the issue of money, but the fee I paid. But nothing I play in a questionable film is not necessary. Sometimes, catches the idea, the talent, a good attitude, but not this time. It was funny when in court the man began to speak, saying, Yegor Konchalovsky is not an actor and is generally unknown to people. I never not claimed that the actor – even the camera I’m afraid. Question: “Why is it that he actually filmed me?!”
