Archival storytelling : a filmmaker's guide to finding, using, and licensing third-party visuals and music by Sheila Curran Bernard( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Archival Storytelling is a pragmatic guide to one of the most challenging issues facing filmmakers today: the use of images and music that belong to someone else. Where do producers go for affordable stills and footage? How do filmmakers evaluate the historical value of archival materials? What do verite producers need to know when documenting a world filled with rights-protected images and sounds? How do filmmakers protect their own creative efforts from infringement?" "Filled with advice and insight from filmmakers, archivists, film researchers, music supervisors, intellectual property experts, insurance executives and others, Archival Storytelling defines key terms - copyright, fair use, public domain, orphan works and more - and challenges filmmakers to become not only archival users but also archival and copyright activists, ensuring their ongoing ability as creators to draw on the cultural materials that surround them."--Jacket
Bad blood : a cautionary tale( Visual )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1960s, new treatments known as clotting factor concentrates were expected to transform hemophilia into a manageable condition. But these pooled-plasma drugs also carried a hidden risk of viral contamination, and by the mid-1980s, 10,000 hemophiliacs had been infected with HIV and 15,000 with hepatitis C - amounting to the most lethal medical disaster in U.S. history. This program investigates the origins and impact of the tragedy. Using expert interviews, patient testimony, and archival materials, the film asks: Was the FDA too close to the pharmaceutical industry to protect the public? What is the flip side to the argument that profitability drives research? How has the hemophilia community moved forward? The facts speak for themselves in this story of grief, recovery, and inspiration - a story of survivors fighting to change a system that failed them
