Hi guys, just wanted to pick your brains.
I was watching the new film 'Supersonic' the other night and was blown over to see several of my clips. they were at a real crucial and important part of the film too so was and still am so chuffed. I'm a massive Oasis fan and lived and breathed them back in 1995 when I was 17.

Anyway to cut a long story short how can I or am I allowed to kind of credit myself on my website about my stock being included in the film? Has anyone done this kind of thing before - to credit themselves?

Congrats, it is fun to see your videos in action.  I was surprised watching the last Super Bowl to see my video in an ad.  I don't see why you can't mention it, you probably can't post their work without permission though.  You could shoot them an email and see what they say.

Thanks for the advice to both of you.
An ad during the super bowl must have been crazy. The amount of money that must have cost to air?

I've seen my work on UK TV quite a bit but never in a film in cinemas.
Just another layer to what my clips have been used for that I would love to explain on my website. I'll try and contact the production company.

Thanks

Yes it's absurd amounts of money. Then think what they pay us... tut tut tut...

I don't think I quite explained my question well enough.
It's basically this...

If we find our work anywhere are we free to state the fact that it's our work? If we see our work in action can we say this on our own website (no video played just words explaining) or when we sell our clips to production company's do we have to stay anonymous? Is it written in the contract somewhere that we give all rights away and can't ever mention the fact of where our clips are used?

Sorry I know it's a gray area, just wondering if anyone has checked out where we stand on this?

Thanks

A lot of books put our names in the credits along with the agency they bought the images from, I think films and TV should do that too.

I don't think it would be a problem to post on your web site that your footage was used in the Oasis film. It is your work after all.

It's interesting where stock footage ends up being used. My biggest surprise footage sighting was being in the theater watching the movie 'Lucy' and seeing my footage. Also surprised when I saw my footage used in the 'Catch Me If You Can' Broadway musical.

It's not on my website, but I did post on Facebook about my footage being used in 'Lucy' and include video of the clip they used.

If anyone spots their work on uk tv make sure you keep a detailed record of when, what channel and program for DACS

That's awesome congratulations! Unless you've signed an agreement directly with the production which states you must not mention any details of collaboration etc then you're certainly free to list the credit on your website.

I've always believed credits don't bring in business but they help lend legitimacy to one's brand. Here's my media credits page for example - http://www.earthuncut.tv/media-credits
