Slick Rock Student Film Festival

Forms

Slick Rock Student Film Festival staff has the right to ask for any form at any time after submission of the video. Failure to provide the requested forms will result in immediate disqualification of that video.

Image and Voice Releases

A signed Image/Voice Release Form is required for all persons in the video whose faces are recognizable or whose voices are significantly used. If the face or voice belongs to a minor, the form must also be signed by the minor's legal guardian. Image/Voice Release Forms are not needed for background characters.

Image/Voice Release Forms must be kept by the video advisor at the school site.

Location Contracts

The Location Contract gives the video production team the right to photograph and record scenes on the property and use those photographs and recordings in a film. The production team agrees to be responsible to the property owner for damage to the property or injury to persons caused by the production team's use of the property. If any part of a video is filmed on private property of any kind, a Location Contract must be completed and signed BEFORE TAPING BEGINS. A Location Contract is NOT needed if the film is shot on campus.

Location Contracts must be kept by the video advisor at the school site.

Student Video Release

The Student Video Release Form must be signed by every student and their parent/guardian if the student is under 18 years of age. This form allows TCOE to show the student's video during the Slick Rock Student Film Festival event and to include the video on the TCOE website. In certain film categories, student's videos may be used for advertising purposes outside the realm of Tulare County Office of Education.

Student Video Releases must be kept by the video advisor at the school site.

Media Release

The Media Release Form must be signed by every student and their parent/guardian if the student is under 18 years of age. The Slick Rock Student Film Festival is typically attended by local print and television media personnel who are reporting on the event. This form allows any news media personnel present to use any student's image and/or words for their various publications and/or broadcasts, some or all of which could also be posted on the internet.

Media Releases must be kept by the video advisor at the school site.
