Each commissioned brief has a "Legal & forms" section where you can:
- Create and complete digital talent release forms
- Upload any other important documents relating to the briefs (such as receipts, insurance forms, music licenses, etc).
You must acquire signed release forms for all talent who appear in content commissioned on Genero.
Talent releases: People in your content
Every person in your video that is recognisable needs to complete a release form.
The provided forms are digital, meaning they're easy to fill out on a computer, tablet or a mobile device with an internet connection. Your talent can sign the form in person on a computer, tablet or phone - or, you can send them a link to the digital form which they can sign at their earliest convenience.
Tip: You can fill and save release forms in advance of your shoot, so your performers can quickly read and sign on a phone or tablet on the day of the shot.
Tip: Forgot to get a signature? Send the performer a link to their form for them to complete later.
Tip: Are you the director and you also appear in your video? You need to complete a release form too.
Design, paintings, sculpture, projections or other Artwork in your video
You need permission from the copyright holder of any artwork that appears in your video. Once signed by the location owner or their legal representative, you must upload a copy of the signed form to the Legal & forms section of the brief.
Tip: this does not include custom created visuals (like animation) you or your production team have created for your video.
A music composition provided directly by the music artist
If you use music in your video that has been provided to you directly by the composer/artist, they must sign an IP release form. Once signed by the IP owner or their legal representative, you must upload a copy of the signed form to the Legal & forms section of the brief.
Filming or capturing content in a privately owned location
To be used when filming or capturing content on private property, where the owner must release rights and give site access. Once signed by the location owner or their legal representative, you must upload a copy of the signed form to the Legal & forms section of the brief.
Music licenses purchased via an online music library
Please upload a copy of the receipt of purchase AND the accompanying license. If the license details are published on a website, you should provide a screen capture of said license (and include a link to the license page in messaging with the client).
You can upload PDFs, Word documents or images/screen-grabs in the Legal & forms section of the brief once you're commissioned.
