08th September 2017

The tenth and final video in our series of top tips for creating videos

It is always important to ensure that you have permission to film anyone under the age of 18. Permission is granted by a parent or guardian. Many schools will have permission granted for their students at the beginning of the school year. It is up to you to verify the rights and usage of that permission and to make sure that every child in the video footage is allowed to be used in the way in which you plan to use your content.

In this video we have a solicitor explaining everything you need to know about parental consent and filming in schools.
