Video Release basics

A Video Release document will be useful when obtaining permission to use people's likenesses in a video project. Having all your participants sign this release will help you safeguard your rights and clarify your obligations.

What is a Video Release Form?

A Video Release will help you get written permission to use video and audio clips of the people featured in your production (for example, a website, movie, or other publication). Video Release documents will typically include the name and contact information of the person whose picture or voice will be used, the name of the party who has permission to use the footage, and what amount, if any, will be paid for the release.

How do I fill out a Video Release Form?

Making a Video Release document online is simple. Once you answer a few questions, Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. The Video Release document is relatively short, with few details needed to complete it. However, if you don't have time to complete the document in one sitting, you can always save your document and finish it later.

Do you need a Video Release for YouTube videos?

You may want to get a release from all of the actors in your YouTube videos. If they don't sign a Video Release, you don't necessarily have their written permission to use their image and likeness in your published video.

What is a Photo Consent Form?

A Photo Consent Form, also called a Photo Release, is much like a Video Release in that it is a way for the subjects in the photograph to give their permission to the photographer to have their image and likeness used in whatever way is allowed under the release. It is signed by an individual whose photo was taken.
