Q. I want to shoot a short documentary about my team's participation in a local trivia bowl. Will I need to secure release forms for everyone I interview or film?
I would. These days, it seems like you want to get a pretty airtight release from anybody who could later on claim infringement of privacy and get an injunction to block distribution of your pic. Most festivals will want to be sure you have the right to show everyone you're showing, too, and so will broadcasters.
Does anyone know where a good standard release form lives on the Net?
Here's one from SUNY New Paltz, which, as a state educational institution probably made sure it was very thorough in ass covering. One could just change relevant information.
Thanks for that form!
