Does anybody know if I'd be able to use a few really short clips of actors in my music video? They're dead now if that makes a difference... (they're alive in the clips though, don't worry.) But yeah, as I lack appropriate male friends I thought it would be cool to use a few clips/pictures of someone like James Dean or Marlon Brando (when he was young and pretty) because I think they'd look fabulous in my video and they'd fit in really well with the style I'm aiming for. I could use a real life person if I'm not allowed to do this, but I wanted to show the girl in my video being influenced by the behaviour of men she sees in films/on TV/etc. instead of some irrelevant guy in 'real life'. Obviously I wouldn't just film the clips, they'd be playing in the background and the girl in the video would be the main focus of the shot, but I wasn't sure if I could do that so I thought I'd better ask on here.
Please help me, because I'll cry if you don't and I look even more like a troll when I cry.
