: Hey, me and some friends are working on an extrmely small, extremely low budget, not for profit indie animation flick and are planning a a few scenes that use Kevin Smith's likeness or mention his name...I was just wondering how it is possible to get the o.k. for that sort of thing.
: If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it, otherwise we'll have to use someone else, and that would mildly suck considering we're all huge fans and want to keep the story straight.
you have to put a disclaimer at the beginning or end of the film stating that all celebrity voices have been impersonated and no celebrities have endorsed any aspect of it. I recall that from m five seconds of pre-pre-pre-law, or as we know now it, The People's Court. Oh and you have to suck his cock ;>
Seriously, that's all you have to do. In no way can you lift his dialogue though. But the celeb voices thing falls under parody. Which is legally protected.
