CODES OF PRACTISE & REGULATION GRID COPYRIGHT WHAT IS COPYRIGHT LAW?
HOW DID YOU KEEP TO COPYRIGHT LAW IN THE AUDIO AND VISUAL ELEMENTS OF YOUR PRODUCTION?
Copyright law within music video, protects music from being used, or taken without the permission of the creative owner, as well as the brand that supports them. It makes it so it is a unique, registered creative aspect, so they control who can use it and who canâ€™t, if people want to use their ideas or creative media, they may charge the person who is asking for the query, or turn it down due to the fact they do not want their work appearing on something they themselves do not like or agree with. It also prevents accidental product placement, or intentional product placement, as they will have to ask permission, or even be asked to sue their product, as products may want, or may not want to sponsor music videos so they appear in them, or they may not, as they may wish not to be branded with the labels, and conventions of the music video in question, as it may carry negative thoughts towards the product.
My production kept and obeyed copyright laws within music, and music videos, by using an unsigned artist, as well as getting permission from them, so I had permission to use it, and I used an unsigned artist. I also did not include any brands in my music video, so I could not possibly breach or break any branding issues. I also made sure no designer clothing was wore, so I did not breach this aspect of music video copyright law. Also product placement was not present.
OFCOM OFCOM REGULATION
PROTECTING UNDER 18s
DESCRIBE THE PARTS OF THE HOW DID YOU KEEP TO IT IN CODE RELEVANT TO MUSIC YOUR PRODUCTION? VIDEO PRODUCTION Sexual Images are not allowed to be fully shown before the watershed time, flesh is somewhat suitable, but no naked, or recurring sexual themes are to be condoned within the schedule before the watershed. Also, you are not allowed to abruptly show sexual or offensive themes, even when the watershed time has come, you must gradually increase from more suitable to being able to show more recurring themes of sexual and other offensive mature themes. So when the watershed time does come, you cannot straight away show a music video full of sexual references and mature content, as children may still be awake. As the time gets later, more mature content can be shown, without much worry of being prosecuted
We showed no sexual images of any kind, and we did not implement anything of a sexual nature, so we have fully avoided being condoned for sexual content. The lyrics were also within Ofcomâ€™s regulations; there are no sexual themes within e visuals or the lyrics.
HARM AND OFFENCE
by parents for showing mature themes whilst children are present, as they will be asleep, most of them will, and if they are not, you cannot really get told off, because if the parents were so concerned about their children watching it that late, they should not allow their children to stay up that late. It is not just the visuals that are monitored, also the lyrics must be within the levels of low sexual content or violence, so both visual and audio elements are monitored. There is clear rules to what offensive material can be shown. And before the watershed, this must be kept to a minimum,. There are allowed, small violent themes, but no big fights, and weapons are into allowed to be shown, as well as self-harm, and suicide. During the time before the watershed, it must be kept to a minimum, and again, you cannot immediately introduce tons of violence as the watershed time starts, it allows children who may be just about to go to bed, or getting ready for bed, not to be effected by the material before their sleep, this, if seen, could implement on their sleep, and play on their minds at night. If violent scenes are present, they must not be psychological, and if so, must be kept to a bare minimum. There must be no offensive material which younger audiences may copy or impersonate. Within music videos, crime must not exist, unless it is over the watershed time, a soap was flagged for gang crime, because they showed it before the watershed, music videos must not show gang crime, or scenes of crime, as younger audiences tend to copy these actions, and may impersonate things that happen, or see that a rich person, steals, so they may think, they steal, they are rich, so if I still Iâ€™ll be rich, this is not the message that should be
Harm and offense was kept to a minimum, there was only shoving and pushing within the music video, this can be seen at the time of, 2:28 the violence was at this point, and past this point, but it was only pushing, and one quick slap which was a second long, so it was not frequent or too violent. However it is not very violent, and I do not believe it breaches the regulations, as you are allowed to show brief scenes of minor violence, which is to be kept to a minimum which ours did.
We did not show any crime in our music video, it was about a couple breaking up, not about crime.
given out to young audiences which could be present.
OFCOM states, within music videos, that ethnic group, must be treated respectably, and not committed with stereotypes of the ethnic group in question. This includes religious. This also includes race, religion, and other ethnic aspects of culture within different groups. There must be no stereotype influence on cultures, unless it is shown with a comedic feel, and is over the watershed hour. Racism should not be shown, unless over the watershed hour, and still must be kept to a minimum. Private information must not be disclosed to the public, private information is to be kept to the person it lies with and no one else, however, companies may apply for warrants to use against privacy, so they have a right to the privacy of certain individuals lives. I will now be quoting the rules from the page I am currently looking at the first rule of privacy is, ‘Information which discloses the location of a person's home or family should not be revealed without permission, unless it is warranted.’ This rule aims to protect the families of the individual, and keep their private life, their private life, unless a warrant is issued. The next regulation is, ‘When people are caught up in events which are covered by the news they still have a right to privacy in both the making and the broadcast of a programme, unless it is warranted to infringe it. This applies both to the time when these events are taking place and to any later programmes that revisit those events.’ The last rule is as follows, ‘Broadcasters should ensure that words, images or actions filmed or recorded in, or broadcast from, a public place, are not so private that prior consent is required before broadcast from the individual or organisation
We did not show any biased towards ethnic race, we included white and Indian races, to show our balance of race. However it was a manly white music video, but not in a racist sense.
In my music video I did not disclose any private information, as people were acting, we were not documenting a live situation, all was staged, and planned, so no opens identity is hurt.
concerned, unless broadcasting without their consent is warranted.’ These rules are created to insure the privacy of peoples life’s, and allow certain aspects of them o be exposed, depending on situation.
INSURANCE TYPE OF INSURANCE
DESCRIBE WHAT THE TYPE OF INSURANCE COVERS
HOW WOULD IT HAVE AFFECTED YOUR PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT?
This insurance covers injuries to people, and individuals. Also, damage, and lost and stolen property. It also, additionally covers; it also covers the business owner, or corporation, if damage is caused or if property is lost. It covers ‘income loss’ and additional, extra costs which were not originally charted to be spent, or to be spent on.
It would have made me pay insurance in case the actors lost equipment; however, most equipment was supplied and observed when in use, so no big problem.
If I used more money then I had in my budget it would cover this situation, as well as if I were to buy something for the production which was not planned, or last minute.
