“Rights and Clearances is the one area of any budget that I find most intimidating because it is here where the most financial damage can be done. As a business owner there is nothing I feel more vulnerable to and concerned about. Having an R&C person on board whom I can trust on every level is invaluable to our company. Brian Potter has been hired for just about every show we have ever produced over the past seven years (several hundred hours of programming) and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any project whatsoever. We have never had a single issue nor have I lost a moment’s sleep when Brian is overseeing this department. Added to this is the simple fact that he is an absolute joy to work with and brings nothing but positive energy to every show he is a part of. And most important of all: He’s so hooked up in town that he saves us a ton of money by cutting amazing deals! He is truly the best!”
Former COO and Executive Producer, Dalaklis McKeown Entertainment, Inc.
“Anyone looking for a rights and clearance specialist needs Brian Potter. He closes deals quickly and efficiently even when faced with small budgets, ridiculously fast turnarounds, and mountains of clips. His knowledge of clearance issues is impressive, and he can be counted on to formulate creative, practical solutions to the most frustrating situations. Plus, his extensive connections allow him to get the best prices out there. If Brian can’t make the deal, then the deal cannot be made. He is hands down the most professional, trustworthy, wonderful clearance person I’ve worked with in all my years of practice.”
“Few people really understand and appreciate the difference a truly First-Class Rights & Clearances Supervisor can make to a reality or clip show until you don't have one. Brian Potter and his formidable team are the crème de la crème: wildly talented and amazingly resourceful negotiators who move heaven and earth to get production what it needs, on time, and (wherever possible) within or under budget. There are many R&C people to choose from in Hollywood, but Brian Potter has created the one and only R&C ‘Dream Team’.”
“On Starface, we needed a huge volume of photo clearances, saddled with a limited budget and a tight schedule. Taking on what seemed an impossible task, Brian and his team members were able to exceed our unrealistically high expectations and, as an executive producer, he made my job a lot easier.”
Executive Producer, “Starface" for GSN
“I have worked with Brian on numerous productions. Whenever there is a need for a Rights and Clearances Specialist he is hands down my first phone call. Brian is the consummate professional, an excellent negotiator and works well in demanding, deadline driven environments.”

“By far the best R&C company I have worked with! If you don’t want to worry about going over budget and have invoices come in months after the project is complete then Clearly Right Entertainment, Inc. is your best bet!”
Executive Director of Production, OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network)
The very first time I worked with Brian Potter, he was called in to fix a clearance situation the night before my production's on-air premiere. He worked late into the evening to secure clearances for my show, and thus began a beautiful working relationship.

“Brian Potter is ambitious and eager in all the right ways. He happens to be one of the best human beings I know, period. Wit, charm, humor and diligence. Killer combo!”

“Where as other people talk about doing things, Brian gets things done. He knows his stuff and is awesome to work with. When I get hired to do a show which requires R&C, Brian is always my top pick, as well as everyone else’s on the show, too!”
“Clearly Right Entertainment is by far the most professional and dedicated clearance company I have ever worked with. Brian, the brains behind the operation, is simply put: the best in the business. I would never produce a clip show or any other kind of film or TV production with heavy clearance issues without Brian and his team.”
“If you need to get it done fast, cost efficiently and with all the paperwork to back it up – hire Brian! He’s a fantastic asset to any production with a wealth of knowledge and experience. You’ll feel great leaving any and all Rights and Clearances up to him”.
“As a former R&C soldier I can separate the pretenders from the contenders, and Brian is a champion. I can't think of a better rights and clearances executive.”
Supervising Producer, E! News Now
“I was lucky enough to work with Brian Potter on the game show "Starface" for GSN. When a show is being built there's always the worry that not all members of the team will jell; thankfully, that was not the case with Brian. Not only was he a terrific guy who was easy to work with, but he was able to do a top-notch job, going above and beyond to provide the best pictures available. In a show that relied heavily on the quality of photographs used, I can honestly say Brian’s efforts made the show the best it could be.”
Writer, "Starface" for GSN
“Brian Potter is truly a unique, one-of-a-kind professional who covers all bases, meets tight deadlines and keeps you laughing the whole way! His incredible contacts, organization style and forward thinking moves your project further, faster and quite honestly without any hiccups!”
"I have worked with Brian on several projects and he has always been a tremendous help. He is the perfect combination of professionalism and friendliness. He is extremely knowledgeable, organized and efficient, and would be a great asset to any production."
