Want to be in the Grammys!
Hey guys, I work at Filmaka and thought you would be interested in this new competition. Filmaka is funding all the productions and the winners could be shown in part during the Grammy Awards! We have several songs that we've already cleared the rights to, which are posted on the competition page. All you have to do is write a 2 to 5 page pitch telling us the story and look of what your music video would be like. If we select your pitch, we'll give you $7500 to produce and direct your music video. If you have an idea for a great script, but not much directing experience, we can pair you with an experienced director who will bring your pitch to life.
PITCHES ARE DUE BY MIDNIGHT ON JANUARY 2, 2009. Go to Filmaka.com and look for the box about the Lincoln Grammy competition for more information. I hope you'll decide to submit!http://www.filmaka.com/

SUBMISSIONS OPEN for DC Shorts Film Festival 2009
Submissions are now open for the 2009 edition of the famed DC Shorts Film Festival! Visit the updated web site at http://dcshorts.com
DC Shorts turns the spotlight on truly independent short films, created by new and established filmmakers in an era when the art of filmmaking is opening to all. We select films from every genre for our competition screenings — with a special focus on films created by metropolitan Washington, DC-based directors and writers. After each screening, filmmakers have the opportunity to speak to the audience as part of a moderated panel.
In 2008, DC Shorts reviewed more than 750 entries from around the globe. We selected 103 short films for screenings at 8 showcases during the competition weekend of September 11-14, 2008, with each show featuring an average of ten short films. Since a major focus of the event is the inclusion of filmmakers, many of the films were represented by the more than 108 filmmakers in attendance from 8 countries. More than 2,600 people attended the screenings.
DC Shorts gives ALL ENTIRES feedback -- a point which impressed MovieMaker Magazine to name us as "one of 20 festivals worth an entry fee," AND as "one of the leading film festivals" in the country.
THE EARLYBIRD DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 15, 2009. Submission fees go up after that date -- so enter now and save!
I look forward to seeing your new works!
- Jon Gann

archival footage clearance issue
I'm a documentary filmmaker (first-time) and have some footage filmed by a friend of mine many years ago, which I hope to incorporate into my doc.
Question: What are the clearance rules for this? Specifically, if a person's face is used for a couple of seconds, no speaking, do I need to clear the use of their image?
Thanks for any help you can provide. If this post does not fall within the rules of this community, please feel free to redirect me.
