Now here's a new tak!!! or is it? on "Copyright" images.

Where possible and perhaps of a more up to date nature after one has viewed some © footage which one might like, or consider using say
location, environmental etc. simply go out and film exactly the same view(s) sequences etc. one's self with one's own camera! A couple of years
back I saw some footage from Wales, I thought, yup that'd be handy. I tried to contact the BBC / Wales, explaining and using my IAC credentials. As usual a waste of time, I was just ignored. Later it just happened that I was able to address a certain "personality" in the old Beeb and he gave me the name etc. of a specific person. I tried again, just ignored as before. So -- I journeyed to the location and video'd exactly the same shots but included a fraction more!!! I've done exactly the same thing again in the past month for another subject!

Lee, I would have thought that all footage should be shot for the specific purpose of the film/s being made unless it is unreasonable or impossible to do so (highly specialist photography, archive footage of things/people that no longer exist, distant locations).

quote above from Tim. Um, maybe I'm misunderstanding, that is precisely what I was / am about...!

Indeed Lee. I was agreeing with you! Not all my posts are confrontational :lol:
Although mine was perhaps slightly stronger in that I saw your take as more of an advisory and mine as a stipulation.

Powers Above! Does that mean we ought to be going out and actually shooting our own footage...? :shock:

:wink:
