Getting the clearance to use paintings, sculptures, and other artwork that will appear on screen is an important part of the filmmaking process. The rights of these works are owned by their copyright holders, and filmmakers need permission to use, photograph, or reproduce artwork in both the movie itself as well as for promotional purposes. While many things can go wrong during filming, obtaining the proper artwork clearance can limit frustrations in this part of the process.
A detailed artwork release will go a long way in ensuring each party's rights are protected. By including a description of the artwork, details about how it can be used, and any payment for that use, the filmmaker can confidently include artwork owned by someone else in his or her film. A good release will also include a promise by the artwork's owner that they won't bring a lawsuit against the filmmaker for using their artwork. LegalZoom offers an easy-to-use Artwork Release that clearly spells out for you each party's rights and addresses liability issues.
