Video Consent Form

The video consent form is written permission given by an individual to an entity/organization for the use of their name, image, and/or interview statements for publication. This consent comes without compensation, regardless of the amount of revenue the content generates. Once the document is signed, the entity/organization is not obligated to ask for the individual’s approval when using their name/image in any publication, advertising or other media enterprises (including the internet). A parent or guardian must sign the consent form if the individual is a minor.
