What is the subject matter of the film. Is it commercial or merely documentary, without profit motive. Where exactly you are residing and the state for the purpose of registration.
You may start contacting the artists, technicians, script writer etc and enter into a contract with them about their remuneration. All agreements shall be in writing. The stamp duty depends upon the state stamp Act. Contact your Lawyer at your place and proceed as per legal advise.
