Video Release Basics

When putting together a website, movie, or other publication, create a Video Release to get written permission to use video and audio clips of the people featured in your production. Having all your participants sign the release helps safeguard your rights and clarifies your obligations. And with the legal side of things taken care of, you can focus on the artistic aspects of your project.

Use the Video Release document if:

  • You wish to use video or audio footage of people in various settings for a website, publication, or other use.

A Video Release (also called a Video Clearance) is a handy tool for obtaining permission to use people's likenesses in a video project. In your Video Release, you'll want to include the name and contact information of the recorded party (that is, the person whose picture or voice will be used); the name of the party who has permission to use the footage; whether the recorded party is an adult, a minor, or an adult under care of a guardian; and what amount, if any, will be paid for the release. Typically, a Release form for video or audio clips doesn't require a cash payment, but in certain cases you may want to compensate the person whose likeness you're trying to obtain; for example, if he or she had to travel a long way to participate.
