Hey everyone! Finally! I finished my rotoscoping project! It was a month of hard work and no fun on the weekends. I finished a week early too! I finished the drawing part of it last Tuesday and did the final editing on Wednesday. It turned out awesome and I burnt a bunch of DVD's. I cant wait to show everyone. However, there is one little problem. I used a song by Beck in the video. Since its a copywritted song im reluctant to post it on my blog without permission. I was planning on submitting it to Art shows and or film fests and I didnt want any problems with copywriting infringement. So I wrote Beck an email stating my case and hoping he will reply with permission to use the song as long as im not gaining monetary value from it. Beck is a huge supporter of the arts and I really think he'll lend me permission.
Am I being to paranoid or being smart about this. I really want to show this thing off but at the same time I dont want to burn any bridges. Should I wait to hear back from Beck first or just say screw it and post it.. Tell me what ch'all think..
