    legalities fro release form

    my partner and i are making a documentary in which we have filmed aboriginal public performances with the written approval and permission of management of the aboriginal park. we have interviewed one member of the cast who was fully aware of microphones and cameras. does each cast member need to sign a release form?

    Pretty much, yes. I can't be sure of the legal stuff in Australia but as a rule it's a good idea to be a bit over the top with release forms. Try to get one for each and every single person who appears in any meaningful way. Even if it's not necessarily required (e.g. for people in the background who are hard to identify), all it takes is for one person to get upset and you've got a hassle on your hands. It's more efficient in the long run to eliminate those hassles before they occur.
