Yes, I agree, Sam. Thanks so much, Kelly. It's exactly what I needed.

Thanks again to everyone who replied. MISP is an excellent resource.

Re: [MISP] Use of movie trailers

***This is a MISP Listserv message. Responses are sent to the list by default.*** ***For more info about MISP and the listserv, scroll to the bottom of the page*** * That is an excellent article!

My reading pulls the following out as the guiding principle and suggests that use of movie trailers in education is indeed fair use, as long as they are not being shown for purely entertainment reasons, that they are being used for forms of commentary or criticism...

PRINCIPLES

ONE: EMPLOYING COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL IN MEDIA LITERACY LESSONS

DESCRIPTION: Educators use television news, advertising, movies, still images, newspaper and magazine articles, Web sites, video games, and other copyrighted material to build critical-thinking and communication skills. Common instructional activities include comparison-contrast analysis, deconstruction (close analysis) of the form and content of a message, illustration of key points, and examination of the historical, economic, political, or social contexts in which a particular message was produced and is received.

PRINCIPLE: Under fair use, educators using the concepts and techniques of media literacy can choose illustrative material from the full range of copyrighted sources and make them available to learners, in class, in workshops, in informal mentoring and teaching settings, and on school-related Web sites.

LIMITATIONS: Educators should choose material that is germane to the project or topic, using only what is necessary for the educational goal or purpose for which it is being made. In some cases, this will mean using a clip or excerpt; in other cases, the whole work is needed. Whenever possible, educators should provide proper attribution and model citation practices that are appropriate to the form and context of use. Where illustrative material is made available in digital formats, educators should provide reasonable protection against third-party access and downloads.

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season.

I have a question for everyone about the use of movie trailers.  I know
under the Fair Use Act and Teach Act that I can use movies, movie clips
and trailers in the classroom and even with online courses if I limit the
viewing to my students.  But I'd like to use some of my instructional
videos for my History of Film class for promotional purposes (to generate
interest in the classes).  I know this puts movie clips off limits but
does it put movie trailers off limits as well?  Aren't movie trailers
offered by studios for public use?

If no one is sure, does anyone know a contact at a studio or in
entertainment law that might know the answer?

The trailers are fully protected under copyright law and
unlicensed use will result in legal action. However, asking
permission, and a limited license, for a bona fide educational use
can be done. Never hurts to ask.

Doug,
The trailer is just a mini version of the film itself and has
all the protections of the full-length feature.
I would suggest that you contact someone from the
studio/production company that owns the film, explain that you
wish to use it for educational purposes, how you intend to do so
and ask for permission. As long as you are not making a
commercial profit from the showing of the film they may be willing
to give permission for its use. Its worth a phone call.

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season.

I have a question for everyone about the use of movie trailers. I know
under the Fair Use Act and Teach Act that I can use movies, movie clips
and trailers in the classroom and even with online courses if I limit the
viewing to my students. But I'd like to use some of my instructional
videos for my History of Film class for promotional purposes (to generate
interest in the classes). I know this puts movie clips off limits but
does it put movie trailers off limits as well? Aren't movie trailers
offered by studios for public use?

If no one is sure, does anyone know a contact at a studio or in
entertainment law that might know the answer?

Sincerely,
--

To all of our MISP colleagues, happy holidays. It has been a year of accomplishments for MISP/Muse, the partnership between the Department of Cultural Affairs and the Media Arts Program at New Mexico Highlands University, and especially for our talented students. We have exciting plans for the coming year, including the establishment of the Center for Cultural Technology, a Center of Excellence at the intersection of digital media and cultural content. Please take a look at a few of the recent highlights:

A student documentary team from NMHU Media Arts was hired by the Santa Fe Railyard Corporation to capture the memories and impressions of people who attended the opening festivities at the Railyard last September.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QxGw3UpZHo

NMHU Media Arts students have created an amazing projection installation currently on view on the historic Las Vegas Plaza entitled "Almas de la Plaza/Spirits of the Plaza, New Mexico from Territory to Statehood." It is well worth the trek up to Las Vegas between now and the end of January to see it. Link to the promo video:

For those people planning a visit the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, don't miss our NMHU student-produced intro video in the orientation gallery for the exhibition "Georgia O'Keeffe and the Camera". The exhibition is on view through January. The video is also on the O'Keeffe's website, www.okeeffemuseum.org and on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fb25_ZoWx1c&fmt=18.

On January 12th, the NMHU Media Arts/DCA partnership will launch the new Program in Interactive Technology (PICT). A class of fourteen students has been selected to produce all of the multimedia and interactive components for one of the inaugural exhibitions at the New Mexico History Museum, which is scheduled to open in May 2009. The exhibition is entitled "Fashioning New Mexico", and it draws on the museum's permanent collection.

NEW MEXICO FILM INDUSTRY NEEDS YOUR HELP!!

A grass roots organization called "Film Industry Promotion Association" FIPA has been formed to help us maintain the film industry here in New Mexico.

The recent article in the New York Times makes it all the more clear that those of us involved in this industry need to make efforts ourselves to keep the Industry flourishing.

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/12/us/12incentives.html?_r=1&th&emc=th&oref=slogin

During the last few years, Governor Bill Richardson and the state legislature have developed and funded significant incentives to attract the film industry to New Mexico. These incentives have been hugely successful and New Mexico now boasts of an impressive infrastructure for the industry. Schools, facilities, trained crew, ancillary services, not to mention wonderful climate and beautiful locations have all made New Mexico one of the top filming centers in North America.

However, we are concerned that once again some state legislators are starting to lose their appreciation for the value the film industry brings to the state. In the last several months questions have been raised about the economics of continuing this successful program. Those of us in the industry and those in the communities where we work know how important the programs are to the tremendous job creation that has occurred since these programs have been in place. There are several industries including hotels and restaurants and service companies that share our enthusiasm for the continuation of the program.

For this reason we have formed the Film Industry Promotion Association (FIPA) to design and institute programs for collaboration and advocacy of the continuation of the state's successful program of industry attraction and support. Having met with state labor leaders, state government officials, guild members and concerned legislators and community leaders throughout the state we know that this initiative is critical. We have hired The Rutherford Group, LLC, a longstanding and well respected government relations firm, to develop and implement a plan of attack. We have set a budget of $56,000 for the first year of this effort, and now must raise the necessary funds to support this imperative goal.

The Film Industry Promotion Association (FIPA) is a grass-roots organization supported and funded by people like you; New Mexico filmmakers, writers, producers, talent agents, casting directors, production crew, actors, post production, stunt people, hotels, restaurants, realtors, travel agents and other businesses that benefit from the growing film industry in New Mexico. 

We are asking every interested member to contribute $50 to this effort. We understand that for some $50 may not be possible but anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated as we need support for each and every one of you who benefits from the New Mexico film industry. For those of you that can contribute more than $50 we thank you in advance as we move more aggressively toward our goal. Consider how the industry has benefited you when considering your donation.  NOTE:  Legislative Session begins in JANUARY. We have a lot of work to do in 2.5 months!!

Member contribution checks should be made out and addressed to: 

Film Industry Promotion Association, LLC    P. O. Box 8747     Santa Fe, NM 87504

The Content + Intent Documentary Institute will guide approximately eight filmmakers and advanced film students through the development of audience and community engagement plans for their film projects. Linking the documentaries-in-progress to organizations committed to progressive social change will be a key component of the Institute.

Participants will create an audience engagement plan for their films, identify potential community and non-profit partners, and develop first drafts of select support materials, including effective timelines, budgets, and implementation strategies. Working Films will offer insight on the development of web sites, fundraising tactics and press strategies.

NMSU-GRANTS CREATIVE MEDIA

Seeking proposals for media related workshops in areas such as movie making (i.e. acting, directing, sound, camera, lighting) and other related industries (i.e. video games,

online marketing, web development). The ideal workshop would be hands-on

and interactive. For example, an acting workshop where actors work through

scenes or a sound workshop working with tools of the trade. We want to

avoid "chalk and talk" seminars. Presenters will receive a stipend and

hotel. The workshops will be presented during our 2nd Annual Change the

World Festival on April 17 and 18, 2009. Proposals are due by January 30,

2009. Email proposals to Doug Bocaz-Larson at dbocaz@nmsu.edu and include

the topic, description, format and length of your workshop.

 

UBUNTU FREE CULTURE SHOWCASE

The Ubuntu Free Culture Showcase is an opportunity to show off high quality free culture content in Ubuntu. At the heart of Ubuntu's ethos is a belief in showcasing free software and free culture, and with each development cycle we open the opportunity for any Free Culture artist to put their work in front of millions of Ubuntu users around the world. Although the space restrictions are tight, and we are limited to how much content we can include, this is an excellent opportunity for artists everywhere.

How it works is simple: Your submission must be no larger than 1MB for audio, 2.5MB for video and 0.5MB for photo/graphic, upload your submission somewhere online (there are lots of free hosting solutions available such as archive.org). Do not email any of the organizers or judges with your submissions, add your entry to one of the tables below, when the deadline for submissions closes, our panel of judges (Cory Kontros, Luis de Bethencourt, Luke Yelavich, Lydia Pintscher and Tony Whitmore) will pick a shortlist, and the Community Council will then pick the final winners from the shortlist.

The deadline for submissions is 6th February 2009.
