Talent Release Forms
Creative Services requires signed release forms from subjects who appear in its productions. However, when photographers and videographers are shooting events in public places such as in classrooms or on campus, release forms are generally not required.
When we stage portraits, group shots, or interviews for instructional or promotional use, subjects who appear in the media production must sign a Talent Release Form. This form must also be signed by guest speakers who are taped for later use in a classroom or promotional setting.
When an image, sound or video segment is recorded for use in a commercial product, signatures from all recorded subjects are required on the Talent Release Form.
