Acutally guys that would be a violation of copyright. I am a photographer I shoot for a newspaper and also at a studio. When you pay for the pictures there is an agreement that you will not reproduce the pctures in any way. This would include scanning them even for emailing or for a project like you said. Although you hire the studio to do the work they still own copyrights. If you charge the person to make the video then you are in for even higher penalties. Most copyright infringement cases settle for more the $100,000. If I were you I would get in contact with the studio before you use the pictures and make sure you can. Remember its better to be safe than sorry.
