Waivers and Release Forms!

1
00:00:02,179 –> 00:00:04,529
so today we’re going to be talking about

2
00:00:04,529 –> 00:00:07,080
waivers and release forms these are

3
00:00:07,080 –> 00:00:08,220
crucial if you’re doing anything

4
00:00:08,220 –> 00:00:10,469
commercial and even YouTube getting to

5
00:00:10,469 –> 00:00:11,820
the point where you have to have these

6
00:00:11,820 –> 00:00:13,139
on a lot of the shoots that you’re doing

7
00:00:13,139 –> 00:00:15,900
we deal with a lot of dangerous stunts

8
00:00:15,900 –> 00:00:18,539
and we deal with commercial work where

9
00:00:18,539 –> 00:00:20,460
we have to have written permission by

10
00:00:20,460 –> 00:00:21,840
the athletes and the people that are in

11
00:00:21,840 –> 00:00:24,390
our videos so Carter is a producer is

12
00:00:24,390 –> 00:00:26,519
the person often deals with that while

13
00:00:26,519 –> 00:00:28,710
we’re on set so have him talk about the

14
00:00:28,710 –> 00:00:30,599
logistics of that first of all I just

15
00:00:30,599 –> 00:00:31,740
want to say that we’re going to have a

16
00:00:31,740 –> 00:00:34,200
link to download the waiver that we use

17
00:00:34,200 –> 00:00:36,540
you can see exactly what we do that

18
00:00:36,540 –> 00:00:38,910
covers us well you know we hope it

19
00:00:38,910 –> 00:00:40,710
covers us in court if anything were to

20
00:00:40,710 –> 00:00:43,140
happen but pretty much things that the

21
00:00:43,140 –> 00:00:45,090
waiver does how it protects you as a

22
00:00:45,090 –> 00:00:48,000
filmmaker is 1 it says that anybody

23
00:00:48,000 –> 00:00:50,430
that’s in your video that they give you

24
00:00:50,430 –> 00:00:52,230
the right to use their image or their

25
00:00:52,230 –> 00:00:55,320
face or likeness as it says in your

26
00:00:55,320 –> 00:00:57,539
video so then after that you can post it

27
00:00:57,539 –> 00:00:59,039
on YouTube and they can’t come and say

28
00:00:59,039 –> 00:01:01,800
hey you need to take this down the

29
00:01:01,800 –> 00:01:03,449
second thing that the waiver does is

30
00:01:03,449 –> 00:01:06,390
that it protects you in case anybody

31
00:01:06,390 –> 00:01:08,640
gets hurt we do a lot of stunts for our

32
00:01:08,640 –> 00:01:11,610
videos and it’s always a question of

33
00:01:11,610 –> 00:01:13,229
safety we have a lot of people watching

34
00:01:13,229 –> 00:01:15,030
taking part in the video people we don’t

35
00:01:15,030 –> 00:01:17,130
know we ask our fans to come out and the

36
00:01:17,130 –> 00:01:18,659
biggest thing is what would happen if

37
00:01:18,659 –> 00:01:21,570
they get hurt doing the slip and slide

38
00:01:21,570 –> 00:01:23,460
that we’ve set up for them so we have

39
00:01:23,460 –> 00:01:25,020
them sign a waiver first saying that

40
00:01:25,020 –> 00:01:27,030
knowingly participate in the in the

41
00:01:27,030 –> 00:01:28,439
stunt even though they know it could be

42
00:01:28,439 –> 00:01:29,729
dangerous and that they could get hurt

43
00:01:29,729 –> 00:01:32,159
and that they can’t sue us for getting

44
00:01:32,159 –> 00:01:34,079
her in that video saying hey I did the

45
00:01:34,079 –> 00:01:35,790
slip and slide I broke my arm and now

46
00:01:35,790 –> 00:01:38,670
you owe me 500 million dollars because

47
00:01:38,670 –> 00:01:41,340
I’m sure that happens right anyway so

48
00:01:41,340 –> 00:01:44,939
the third thing is that in our waivers

49
00:01:44,939 –> 00:01:46,890
in the case of our waivers they say that

50
00:01:46,890 –> 00:01:49,229
even though you can’t sue us we do have

51
00:01:49,229 –> 00:01:52,500
to have production company insurance you

52
00:01:52,500 –> 00:01:54,329
know we when we’re working with big

53
00:01:54,329 –> 00:01:55,799
brands that’s something that they do

54
00:01:55,799 –> 00:01:58,170
force you to have so we have production

55
00:01:58,170 –> 00:01:59,700
company insurance that if anyone does

56
00:01:59,700 –> 00:02:02,070
get hurt we can’t with they’re covered

57
00:02:02,070 –> 00:02:04,229
under our insurance so they can’t sue us

58
00:02:04,229 –> 00:02:06,000
but we do try and take care of them we

59
00:02:06,000 –> 00:02:07,079
don’t want anybody to get hurt

60
00:02:07,079 –> 00:02:08,949
knock on wood we haven’t had

61
00:02:08,949 –> 00:02:11,830
huge serious injuries but so that’s the

62
00:02:11,830 –> 00:02:13,569
waiver in a nutshell and those are the

63
00:02:13,569 –> 00:02:15,459
three areas where it can protect you

64
00:02:15,459 –> 00:02:16,660
we’re going to have that link in the

65
00:02:16,660 –> 00:02:19,030
bottom and we suggest you go look at it

66
00:02:19,030 –> 00:02:20,860
you can change it however you want it to

67
00:02:20,860 –> 00:02:22,480
be I know it might not make a lot of

68
00:02:22,480 –> 00:02:23,860
sense maybe as a young filmmaker

69
00:02:23,860 –> 00:02:26,970
starting out but as things start to grow

70
00:02:26,970 –> 00:02:29,140
you never know and it’s good to start

71
00:02:29,140 –> 00:02:30,790
that practice especially if you’re

72
00:02:30,790 –> 00:02:32,800
putting footage on YouTube and then

73
00:02:32,800 –> 00:02:35,170
people come by years later and say hey

74
00:02:35,170 –> 00:02:37,690
this is an awesome video you made I want

75
00:02:37,690 –> 00:02:39,220
to buy some of the footage and put it in

76
00:02:39,220 –> 00:02:41,260
a commercial do you have the releases

77
00:02:41,260 –> 00:02:43,420
for the people or the locations in it

78
00:02:43,420 –> 00:02:45,310
that’s the first question I get asked

79
00:02:45,310 –> 00:02:47,200
when people want stock footage is hey I

80
00:02:47,200 –> 00:02:49,269
see you have three actors I need those

81
00:02:49,269 –> 00:02:52,630
release forms so that I can use very

82
00:02:52,630 –> 00:02:54,430
image in their likeness most people

83
00:02:54,430 –> 00:02:58,750
don’t know this but we pay $37,000 US

84
00:02:58,750 –> 00:03:02,920
currency a year for insurance for the

85
00:03:02,920 –> 00:03:06,160
people on our shoes so what that means

86
00:03:06,160 –> 00:03:09,130
is if we have a fan or someone else for

87
00:03:09,130 –> 00:03:11,260
that matter an athlete come on one of

88
00:03:11,260 –> 00:03:13,660
our shoots and they get hurt we do have

89
00:03:13,660 –> 00:03:16,540
them sign a release form they can’t sue

90
00:03:16,540 –> 00:03:19,540
us but we also have that insurance to

91
00:03:19,540 –> 00:03:21,190
take care of them in case something does

92
00:03:21,190 –> 00:03:23,590
go wrong because we do care about the

93
00:03:23,590 –> 00:03:25,569
people that are in our videos you always

94
00:03:25,569 –> 00:03:27,880
have to be mindful of that and take care

95
00:03:27,880 –> 00:03:30,190
of them the best you can so we have

96
00:03:30,190 –> 00:03:31,750
insurance to cover them if something

97
00:03:31,750 –> 00:03:33,970
goes wrong we’ve only had to use that

98
00:03:33,970 –> 00:03:36,010
insurance thankfully a couple times and

99
00:03:36,010 –> 00:03:38,200
it basically they got hurt on the shoots

100
00:03:38,200 –> 00:03:40,480
and we covered their medical bill the

101
00:03:40,480 –> 00:03:41,829
went to the hospital and took care of

102
00:03:41,829 –> 00:03:43,480
all that stuff and they’re they’re still

103
00:03:43,480 –> 00:03:45,850
walking to this very day so we have that

104
00:03:45,850 –> 00:03:47,440
insurance in case there is a freak

105
00:03:47,440 –> 00:03:49,120
accident you never know something’s

106
00:03:49,120 –> 00:03:51,670
going to go wrong and we do want to take

107
00:03:51,670 –> 00:03:53,260
care of our people so even though we are

108
00:03:53,260 –> 00:03:55,450
covered legally through those waivers or

109
00:03:55,450 –> 00:03:57,670
release forms we also do everything we

110
00:03:57,670 –> 00:03:59,170
can to take care of the people that make

111
00:03:59,170 –> 00:04:01,810
our videos what they are so a lot of

112
00:04:01,810 –> 00:04:03,730
people say well you’re making money on

113
00:04:03,730 –> 00:04:05,319
these videos the truth is we spend it on

114
00:04:05,319 –> 00:04:07,060
these videos as well and a lot of that

115
00:04:07,060 –> 00:04:08,500
has to do with taking care of the people

116
00:04:08,500 –> 00:04:10,540
that are actually in our videos now a

117
00:04:10,540 –> 00:04:12,579
good kind of example card was just

118
00:04:12,579 –> 00:04:14,410
talking about this a moment ago but a

119
00:04:14,410 –> 00:04:15,639
lot of times we’ll have a big company

120
00:04:15,639 –> 00:04:18,159
come and say hey Devon we love this

121
00:04:18,159 –> 00:04:21,488
video we want to buy five seconds of it

122
00:04:21,488 –> 00:04:22,420
to use on national

123
00:04:22,420 –> 00:04:24,250
vision you also have to have the release

124
00:04:24,250 –> 00:04:26,590
form for this athlete though so I sign

125
00:04:26,590 –> 00:04:28,210
off on it I give them essentially a

126
00:04:28,210 –> 00:04:29,530
release form saying I give you

127
00:04:29,530 –> 00:04:30,910
permission use the footage from our

128
00:04:30,910 –> 00:04:34,210
company and then after that I have to

129
00:04:34,210 –> 00:04:35,470
get permission from the athletes and we

130
00:04:35,470 –> 00:04:36,910
had them sign that release form but

131
00:04:36,910 –> 00:04:38,320
whenever a big company comes in like

132
00:04:38,320 –> 00:04:40,330
that we always try and give back so

133
00:04:40,330 –> 00:04:41,290
we’ll actually have them work out

134
00:04:41,290 –> 00:04:43,510
another deal such as let’s just say dr.

135
00:04:43,510 –> 00:04:46,720
pepper is kind of a example we have them

136
00:04:46,720 –> 00:04:49,150
sign a paper release form as well and

137
00:04:49,150 –> 00:04:51,280
then they get paid we get paid so

138
00:04:51,280 –> 00:04:53,680
everyone benefits together so that’s

139
00:04:53,680 –> 00:04:55,780
another way that kind of goes about and

140
00:04:55,780 –> 00:04:57,130
that’s why release forms are so

141
00:04:57,130 –> 00:04:59,020
important but it’s definitely within the

142
00:04:59,020 –> 00:05:01,150
film industry so we’ll have a release

143
00:05:01,150 –> 00:05:03,430
form down below that we use we made a

144
00:05:03,430 –> 00:05:05,530
little bit generic so it covered you in

145
00:05:05,530 –> 00:05:06,850
case you’re wondering like what’s a good

146
00:05:06,850 –> 00:05:08,950
release form that I can use these are

147
00:05:08,950 –> 00:05:10,570
the ones that we use on our shoots

148
00:05:10,570 –> 00:05:12,940
they’re slightly altered for what we do

149
00:05:12,940 –> 00:05:14,650
and our company is on that but

150
00:05:14,650 –> 00:05:16,780
everything else super generic so you can

151
00:05:16,780 –> 00:05:18,820
all use these release forms so you can

152
00:05:18,820 –> 00:05:20,980
get the best bang for your buck or so

153
00:05:20,980 –> 00:05:22,390
you can get the most out of your shoots

154
00:05:22,390 –> 00:05:24,220
and be protected also take care of the

155
00:05:24,220 –> 00:05:25,990
people that are in your videos to make

156
00:05:25,990 –> 00:05:28,240
them happen so that is our tutorial on

157
00:05:28,240 –> 00:05:30,430
release forms and waivers thanks so much

158
00:05:30,430 –> 00:05:34,110
for watching over now

159
00:05:48,630 –> 00:00:00,000
