Get in touch with Mike Hoolboom, his feature "Imitations of Life" is full of appropriated Hollywood imagery. I'd be surprised if he had all of those clips cleared. A link to watch the
film is on his website.

Subject: [Frameworks] Re-authored Imagery Culled from Commercial DVDs

I would like to make a collage documentary consisting of very short, 3 to 5 second clips (possibly longer) relative to my theme, culled from pre-1960 Hollywood films. My question is two-fold: First, are there any intellectual property issues regarding image and sound, given the length of the clips? The project won't have a theatrical release, only film festivals and self-distribution. Secondly, what would be the best method for ripping these clips from a dvd of the original source film?

Thanks, Kenwww.crookedbeautythefilm.com  (Academic)
