USER-CONTENT WEBSITE REVIEW FOR FILM-MAKERS

This is an attempt to create an easy-to-read guide for film-makers and other creatives who want to put their works on sites like You-Tube but don't want to accidentally give away copywrite to umpteen third parties. This is a wiki, so please add to this.

THOSE WHO USE CREATIVE COMMONS

ARCHIVE.ORG

includes loads of short-films so old they are out of copyright. Lots of documentary, old (American) newsreel & propaganda, as well as 1930s-1950s cartoons. If you want a nuclear explosion in a film, this is where to find it. Also several Creative Commons Licence films (you can re-use the footage as long as you don't use it for commercial purposes). You can also put your films on it if they're Creative Commons Licensed.

Their stock-footage library is here

THE FREESOUND PROJECT

Loads of sound-effects which are free, even for commercial projects, as long as you credit their creators.

OTHERS

THE INFAMOUS YOU TUBE

The huge video site where you can upload videos. Watch out though…

“You also hereby grant each user of the YouTube Website a non-exclusive license to access your User Submissions through the Website, and to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and perform such User Submissions as permitted through the functionality of the Website and under these Terms of Service. The foregoing license granted by you terminates once you remove or delete a User Submission from the YouTube Website.” - quoted from here

While your video is on You Tube it is effectively in the public domain. These are the same rights you grant if you chose to make your film http://creativecommons.org//Creative Commons, but if you chose to make your film Creative Commons this is limited to non-comercial use: people can remix and share your work non comersially only.

You Tube, however, may be so big that this may be worth it. But you have been warned.

LIVE VIDEO

A canadian copy of You Tube. There are a few diferances, however.

  • They don't grant all the site's users the same rights as You Tube.
  • A slightly different attitude to censorship. Some videos are marked as being for over 18's only. There is a “family filter”: when this is on, none of the over 18 videos will show up on the website. By default, this is on.

ANIBOOM

Another site made up of streamed user-uploaded video, but limeted to animations. They also give 10% of their revinue from internet advertising to the makers of the videos. This is destributed amungst the videos according to how much each indevidual video is watched.

And now for a quote from the licence agreement: -

“3. I hereby expressly authorize Aniboom to use the Material submitted by me for any purpose chosen by Aniboom on the internet upon their sole and absolute discretion, professional, business and other considerations.” - quoted from here

Not so bad, maybe.

BRIT FILMS

Another site you can upload your videos to. They will send you reviews of the latest big films that you're bound to have heard of already via email for ever.

“By submitting any contribution to Britfilms you agree, subject to the further licence signed and agreed by you, that by submitting your contribution, to grant Britfilms a royalty-free, non-exclusive, license to use, reproduce on the net, exercise all licensed copyright and publicity rights with respect to your contribution worldwide.” quoted from here
