Do you want to protect your work and yourself? Did you have a cast in your music video? Did you have extras in your music video? If the answer is yes, then I recommend preparing a talent release form for yourself. You can also find them for free on several websites online. This form is extremely important if you have a cast in your music video. It gives the producer permission to distribute and sell the finished product with the permission of your cast. Be sure to have your cast complete the form PRIOR to the beginning of your video shoot. Let’s say one of your cast becomes indifferent about the finished product and changes their mind on wanting themselves to appear in the video at all. If you have the talent release form signed than you have the right to sell and distribute the music video as is. This is to protect you and your music video. DON’T FORGET THE TALENT RELEASE FORMS.
Where did you find your version of the talent release form? Have you had any bad experiences by not having your cast sign talent release forms? Did you learn the hard way?
