Emre Tufekci S.O.A.Pop-up Book Copyright
by on Sep 29, 2009 at 10:30:12 am

A friend of mine asked about making a music video using "existing" pop-up books as the main theme. My first reaction was too tell her that all those books with their content/images would be copyrighted and we could not use them without permission.

To me it seems preety staright forward but I just wanted to ask if anybody has had a similar project or issue?


Thanks,

You're correct. Pop-up books are covered by the same copyright laws as any other book or work of art. If you get permission, there would be no problem. Maybe you can find a pop-up artist to work with you.

You could make your own though. Two options would be either buying one of those $20 pop up book kits and with a little help from photoshop or illustrator, you can create some print outs that can be pasted in the premade kit. Or you can start from scratch and still have the exact content you need if you create some print outs from photoshop, illustrator, or whatever happens to be your favorite program to use.

....your local craft store or toy store probably also has crayons and colored pencils you can buy to make designs too. The best part is, as long as you don't copy an existing pop-up book or existing photographs owned by someone else, it's all copyright free to use!

Check out these links to maybe start giving you some ideas:

Yes, and his medicinal affect is so wide reaching and pronounced, that he is also the cure for boredom, as well.

Cure?? I thought he was the cause. Certainly a symptom.

LOVE Van Morrison.

There are few bad moods that a listen to "Brown Eyed Girl" won't cure.

Although, the song has been ruined forever for me by the image of Armand Assante dancing to the song wearing rolled-up suit pants and bright red ladies' pumps in the movie "Fatal Instinct" (funny, check it out).

Have you noticed that Van Morrison is one of those people whom is only and always called by his full name? It's never just "Van," or "Morrision," always "VanMorrison"?

Jeepers... I'm rambling today.

Yes, and his brother Jim wasn't all that bad either.

Sadly though, their little brother, Bertie, never seemed to catch on.

A precaffeinated,

Thanks for the link. I saw it once on late night television and couldn't for the life of me remember what it was called. Netflix here I come...

You'll love it Ron... great foolish foolish fun, especially for the fans of the many movies that it parodies. And Armand Assante, whom you normally do not think of as a funny guy, is hilarious.

Ties with "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" as my two favorite Carl Reiner-directed films.

Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid is one of the funniest movies of all time.

I love that movie.

I loved this one too but could never remember what it was called. I rented a few Fatal This-and-That movies at a local video store a few years back and never found the right one. Then I forgot about it.

Now, I know the right one.

Thanks again,

Ron

You know, if it were made today "Dead Men..." wouldn't be nearly as good... there would be so much compositing and CG voodoo placing Rigby Reardon actually in those old movie scenes that it would destroy the charm.

The beauty of "Dead Men..." was that had none of that... made only with new footage intercut with the old stuff... with clever angles, body doubles, duplicated lighting, and flawlessly recreated sets. And pretty darn seemlessly. Pretty clever story construction, too.

Actually, that movie looks better on TV than it did in the theatre. On the big screen there was a noticeable grain difference in the old footage vs. the new... but on a television screen you barely notice it.

The only thing that bothers me about it is the blaring wall-to-wall music score... which I'm betting was done because 30 years ago (almost) they didn't have quite the technology we have today that would have allowed them to cleanly remove the music track from the old clips... so a new loud track was overlaid to more or less blot it out.

Still, a great film though...still makes me laugh. The scene where Steve Martin makes the coffee is worth the price of admission alone.

[Todd Terry] "The scene where Steve Martin makes the coffee is worth the price of admission alone."

I pretty much agree with all you said, but in response to the quote above, I would have to say that my own favorite scene is still the one where Rachel Ward removes the bullet from his arm.



Too funny.

Kinda like Lee Harvey Oswald.

Good advice. Too many people proceed on what they want to believe instead of what is factual and they suffer for it later.
