We recently made a video for a chamber of commerce to promote the area. The chamber is selling the DVD’s that they get duplicated from us for a small fee. They called & requested that we get a copyright for them. We want to be able to use some of the footage for other purposes, possibly, especially because some of it we just donated from film we already had taken & it happened to be what they needed. What is the norm for producer & client? Do most videographers use footage again that they have used previously in a job? Doesn’t the videographer normally have copyrights? If so, what do we do about some photos we put in the video as a collage with permission from different individuals? Nothing was formally in writing & I doubt seriously that any of the photos were copyrighted. It was all just friendly agreement to use for the chamber. Thanks for any and all input you can give!
