Hey guys, as well as a budding shooter Im also a musician and about to release some music. I want a simple music video and have been playing the track along to some youtube vids of animals running in slo-mo (such as this: ). Its just works SO well... but its footage I could NEVER afford if its even available for sale.
I just wonder in this age of digital mish mash of distribution, what would happen if I were to cut together a few segments from such videos and play my song over them and use that as a faux music vid?
I understand that this would definitely not be allowed if the video were to be broadcast on say MTV (which it totally wont anyway!), but for the purposes of youtube, facebook etc what are the possibilities of this being ok? Could I get sued?? How it really any different from a fan posting up a bunch of "my favourite animals" videos?
Finally, is there any way to get around licensing issues by "effecting" the video - black and white and in reverse, for example..
