Probably. Depending on when the film was released and the proposed use of the material, actors may have to be contacted for a written release and a re-use payment may need to be made. The Screen Actors Guild (www.sagaftra.org) may be able to provide useful information on obtaining consents and making payments. You may also consider contacting a professional clearance service. We can provide a list of clearance service providers upon request.
You should attempt to identify each stunt performer featured in the clip or still that you want to use. If you are unable to identify a particular stunt performer, you might try contacting the stunt coordinator on the film. Stunt coordinators can often be located through SAG or via the Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com). SAG will assist you with obtaining payment information for the featured stunt performer and advise you on the appropriate SAG scale payment.
