Do you need a way to get permission to use the video you take of people during events and activities? If so, you need a video release form. With WPForms’ video release form, you can easily get people’s consent to use the video you’ve captured for marketing materials and more.

With WPForms’ video release form, you can collect the names of those you’ve videotaped, state your terms and conditions, and give users an easy way to agree to your terms so you can use the film for your own purposes.

(Please note, this example form does not constitute a fully written and usable photography release. The content here is merely for example purposes.

I hereby grant the XYZ COMPANY, its directors, officers, employees, agents, and designees (collectively “XYZ COMPANY”) non-revocable permission to capture my image and likeness in videotapes, motion pictures, recordings, or any other media (collectively “Images”). I acknowledge that XYZ COMPANY will own such Images and further grant the XYZ COMPANY permission to copyright, display, publish, distribute, use, modify, print and reprint such Images in any manner whatsoever related to XYZ COMPANY business, including without limitation, publications, advertisements, brochures, web site images, or other electronic displays and transmissions thereof. I further waive any right to inspect or approve the use of the Image by the XYZ COMPANY prior to its use. I forever release and hold the XYZ COMPANY harmless from any and all liability arising out of the use of the Images in any manner or media whatsoever, and waive any and all claims and causes of action relating to use of the Images, including without limitation, claims for invasion of privacy rights or publicity.

I hereby warrant that I am eighteen (18) years old or more and competent to contract in my own name or, if I am less than eighteen years old, that my parent or guardian has signed this release form below. This release is binding on me and my heirs, assignees and personal representatives.

With our simple Video Release Form Template you get the following form fields:

  • Name
  • Section Divider
  • Date / Time
  • Checkboxes

Of course, this is just a video release form sample to get you started.

You can use our easy to use drag & drop form builder to add, remove, and customize the fields as needed.

For example, add a Signature form field to your video release form template so you can collect electronic signatures from those on your video and make their consent for you to use the footage more official. In addition, add an Email or Phone form field to your video release form so you can get in touch with those on your videos just in case you have questions for them or want to capture more footage of them for upcoming marketing materials.

If you want more information about those you’ve videotaped, add Single Line Text form fields to your video release form template. For example, if you are the videographer for a youth sports league, find out information about the kids your videotape such as their names, ages, team names, and more. This would be perfect if you were adding footage to your website to promote a sports league and want to introduce some of the best players and get people to sign their kids up to play.

Lastly, make sure to configure WPForms email notifications so that once a video release form is submitted on your website, you can stay in touch with users and let them know what the next steps are. Tell them when they can expect their video to release and where they can see the clips. After all, people that agree to let you use their footage probably want to see the edited version in action.
