All productions to be aired and broadcast, even those that only use friends and are shot in someone's backyard, require these legal forms for actors, interviewees, locations, and music. We assume that you have done all the legal footwork you're required to do when you upload your video. These forms are here for you to download, fill out, and keep in your records. If your film is a Finalist, we will need these completed forms before airing it on Link TV.
Everyone who appears in your video (actors, interviewees, and people just standing in the background) need to sign a "Personal Appearance Release" form.
If you use still photos, video, or other materials which you do not own, it's important to get permission to use these materials.
Music (Master Use License Agreement)
If you use music from a band, they need to have completed one of these, giving you permission to use their songs. But if you use music from our Director's Toolkit, don't worry, we've already secure usage rights for you.
This form shows that you have been given permission to shoot at the locations you have used.
