In any type of recorded production, there are two distinct parties: those who do the recording and those who are being recorded. Those who do the recording-typically filmmakers or producers-need to know that they have permission to use the voice, image, and/or performance of the performer. On the other side, those who spend their time being recorded-such as actors, singers, or other types of performers-need assurances that their voice, image, or performance is not used in ways for which they were not intended. Having a talent release will clarify each party's rights and list all permitted (and prohibited) uses of the recordings. A talent release allows filmmakers and producers to make their recordings on film, videotape, audiotape, or other media forms, and to use them in a motion picture, on TV, on the web, or in advertisements. A good release will include many stipulations, chief among them a description of the recordings, limits on how the recordings can be used, and payments for the use. The release should also include the talent's release of claims against the filmmaker or producer for their use of the recordings. LegalZoom offers a simple Talent Release sample for adults that will clearly outline for you each party's rights in regards to recordings. Download and begin using the Talent Release today.
