Document Overview

A Video Release for Interviewee or Film Extra is an important document that can help to ensure that the necessary permissions are obtained for the use of an interviewee's or extra's likeness in a video production. Whether you are a producer or filmmaker seeking to obtain these permissions, or an interviewee or extra seeking to protect your rights, a well-drafted Video Release can provide the necessary legal protections and assurances to ensure a successful production.

This Release can be adapted to be a release for a person being interviewed for a documentary film.

The Release achieves several purposes:

  • It ensures that every person appearing in the film has signed a document which effects a release, to take account of the “performer's protection” provisions of Part XIA of the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth). It deals with the performer's moral rights that were introduced by the US Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act 2004 (Cth) into Part IX of the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth).

  • It provides the production company with a waiver in respect of any subsequent litigation.

It is important to be aware of the relevant state or territory legislation relating the enforcement of contracts signed with children to ensure that any contract is enforceable. If unsure, seek legal advice. Where this release is being signed by a child, it should also have the child's parents or guardians as parties.
