No deal. Normal agreement or no, I’m not releasing anything without payment up front. When, over the years, I’ve been offered $200 or so for one-time use (whether or not they use it) the producers or companies making the offer have never sought a option with payment ONLY if they decide to use the footage. Sounds sucky to me.
