Terms of Release
For good and valuable consideration the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, I hereby irrevocably grant to Project Contrast LLC, its affiliated entities, licensees, successors, assigns and those acting under its permission or upon its authority (collectively, “Producer”), my consent and the absolute, unrestricted and irrevocable right and permission to copyright, record, reproduce, broadcast, distribute, edit, publish, exhibit, sell, disseminate and use in any way forever and throughout the world any recording, videotape, motion picture or photographic portraits or pictures of me and to use my actual or simulated voice, biography, image and/or likeness, in whole or in part, whether or not in conjunction with my own or fictitious name, and any reproduction thereof, made through any medium or media now known or hereafter devised (the “Photo Shoot”) in connection with, and as part of the series currently entitled “Project Contrast Series” (the “Series”), or any production, project, or use in Producer’s sole discretion and for advertising, publicity, distribution or exhibition or any other purpose whatsoever.
I hereby assign to Producer all right, title and interest in any photographs, videos, and recordings made in connection with the above for exploitation by Producer in any and all media of any nature whatsoever now known or hereafter devised, along with full rights of assignability. Such right and permission shall be exercisable (in whole, in part or not at all) at the discretion only of Producer.
I hereby acknowledge that all of the results and proceeds of my services are work-made-for-hire, and if not, I hereby irrevocably grant and assign, to be owned by Producer, all rights, title and interest in my appearance and/or performance. I understand that Producer has no obligation to utilize my appearance and/or performance in the Series or in any other use.
I hereby waive any right that I may have to inspect or approve the Photo Shoot or any finished product or the use to which such finished product may be applied.
I hereby release Producer and its collective officers, directors, shareholders, and employees from any liability, based upon any of the rights referred to herein or otherwise arising in connection with the Production, including, without limitation, claims for defamation, invasion of privacy and copyright infringement.
No breach of this consent and release or violation of my rights shall entitle me to terminate or rescind the rights granted to Producer herein or to enjoin the production, exhibition or other exploitation of the Series. My sole remedy in the event of Producer’s breach hereof will be strictly limited to the right, if any, to recover compensatory monetary (but not punitive or consequential) damages in an action at law, and in no event shall any of the rights acquired or to be acquired by Producer hereunder be affected or impaired.
This consent and release agreement shall be construed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of the State of California applicable to agreements made and performed entirely therein.
