Model release for major cable channels
on Jul 15, 2008 at 6:27:03 pm

I'm working on a documentary which I may want to offer to a major cable channel.

I've always used very simple release forms, but I suspect that the larger networks want to see something a little beefier. Could someone point me to a standard talent release form which the "biggies" universally accept?

Thanks!
