Student Handbook

Cast/Crew Release

< Back

A cast / crew release can protect the filmmaker down the road with issues that may arise on rights or permission given for a project. It also sets times and dates for work. Some examples of issues that may arise are; verbal agreement on rights made between students or 3rd producer / cinematographer / editor / actor changing their mind after production has taken place and reneging on verbal permission to give up their rights. This has happened before with student productions and the release is a painless process to go through that could save you a big headache down the road.
