Forms. You'll need these.
In the heat of production, you cannot forget that for each actor, location, music track, sound effect - there must be sign-off from an authority for use in the film challenge.
Here are the 2018 forms that each team will need:
But what if you need more?
Here's a list of the forms required to submit your film and why you would use them.
- Talent Release Form | If your actor/actress appears in the film, we need them to fill out a form.
- Minor Release Form | Have someone who is under 18 who will be the film? We need their parent/guardian to fill out this form (an email attached as proof can work as a temporary solution until you get a signature)
- Location Release Form | If a location appears in the film, we need the owner of the location (or someone with the appropriate authority) to sign off on the form.
- Music/SFX Release Form | If we hear a sound effect that did not occur naturally in the film, or a music track that is owned by anyone (ever), we'll need to make sure you have proof that the track is authorized and/or properly licensed. If you know a band from Germany and they give you permission to use a song from their album (and have the right to do so), an email from them will suffice until a signature can be obtained.
