Hi,

I'm planning out a documentary/drama and am interested in finding
resources on what you can / can't include in documentaries from
existing works, and how to go about purchasing licenses for
copyrighted works. For example: How do you include a news clip about
current news? How do you get the rights to include a clip from an old
John Wayne movie, etc.

I'll find a more accurate topic to post this under too.

Hi everyone. New to the forum, and new to the world of documentaries.
I'm just starting research on a small documentary for a studio in Los
Angeles, and I'm looking forward to tapping the brainpower and
experience of my fellow filmmakers.

Welcome, Don. Does Los Angeles have a film community?

Just kidding.

Hi everyone! I'm new to this and also new to making documentaries

The documentary is about natural births, cesareans and vbacs
(vaginal birth after cesarean) and the controversy surrounding it.
I'm not sure how exactly it'll end up cause I have a lot of ideas
and a lot of information to gather but I definitely plan on
including artistic elements as well as providing a resource for
women as well as their families and the sky is the limit as where
I'll be trying to exhibit it...

Thanks for your support!

Ack, D-Word's first spam. Hopefully the hosts will delete it soon

Hey,

Just found this site. I've sunk about a year so far into my current
full length doc, Resurrect Dead (www.resurrectdead.com) It's a
first time effort for all of us involved - we're really excited.

It follows an excentric artist obsessed with solving a crop circle-
esque mystery.

I'm glad to find this forum. Cheers, -Jon

Hello. I just discovered this fourm through the Docurama website.
I haven't even looked around yet! I just registered and hopped in
to introduce myself.

I'm yet another one of those "aspiring" documentary filmmakers the
digital age has bred. I'm currently researching for a doc in
Chicago (where I live) and have shot some footage that couldn't
wait for my research. Hope to find some other Chicagoans.

Glad to be here - I'm going to go dig around and see what all
you've got here. Very excited to know this forum exists.
