What's an artwork release?
Getting clearance to use artwork in a movie or other filmed story is an important element in an already collaborative process. An artwork release allows a filmmaker the use of a specific work of art, or reproductions of that art, while protecting the owner's rights. This includes the terms of how the artwork will be used, and payment for its use.
