Can I use TEDxCanberra Talks in my documentary?
Documentary filmmakers can use excerpts of TEDxCanberra Talks within their films, provided the speaker agrees to the use as well. TEDxCanberra must secure permission from each individual speaker for any use not produced by TEDxCanberra. In order for us to approach the speaker with the request, you must provide TEDxCanberra with a brief from the filmmaker on the intended use of the footage, the film’s perspective/point of view, and distribution plan, as well as brief bios on the creative team (producer, director, etc.).
If the speaker agrees, we will provide the filmmaker with footage in one of our standard formats: DVCPro NTSC, DVCPro PAL, DVCPro NTSC Anamorphic or DVCPro HD 1080i60. We do not deliver footage on tape. No licensing fees are charged, but the footage must be accompanied by an on-screen credit (generally a lower-third) referencing TEDxCanberra.org. We prefer the language “Full talk available at TEDxCanberra.org”.
Requests for use within a documentary should go to our PR team, who can be reached at email@example.com.
