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 children and minors. On the other side, minors who spend their time being recorded-such as actors, singers, or other types of talent's 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 for minors allows filmmakers and producers to make their recordings on film, videotape, audiotape, or other media forms, and to use material by young talent 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 its use of the recordings. If a producer or filmmaker is planning to hire a performer(s) under the age of 21, a Talent Release for Minors will need to be signed to protect the rights and interests of all parties involved. The Talent Release for Minors will address the rights and interests of all parties: the "Filmmaker" (filmmaker or producer), the "Minor" (performer, under the age of 21), and the "Guardian" (parent or legal guardian of the performer). This Release will also grant the "Guardian" the ability and authority to sign the Release on behalf of the "Minor". In addition, potential employers should always review specific state laws about contracting with a minor and parental consent. LegalZoom offers a simple Talent Release for Minors that will clearly outline for you each party's rights in regards to the recordings. Download and begin using it today.
