Is a press release only needed when filming in a hospital for 'patients' or individuals agreeing to be 'actors' in the film?

I am starting work on a promotional film for a local small hospital later this week.

The scenes will be controlled, so we don't end up with random people. Just willing actors, OR employees/partners for the hospital. (Some of the doctors have private practices, and just do surgery or other services at the hospital various days of the week.)

We are using a release the hospital uses; but have added our company as agent for the hospital and will retain a copy for our records.

Do releases need to have an address/phone number, OR JUST name & signature?

The professional film companies I have worked with have a release with full address, signature, contact info, witness signature, and photo of actor with drivers license held up to their face. There should be a PA at the entrance to the set to make sure all who enter without crew badges sign the release.

This is pretty low key. Mostly will use employees I'm told. No paid actors, just people very excited about being in the film

You really need to talk to the hospitals Risk Management Dept. and the hospital you are working for or with should have that already nailed down.

Very good, what I have is standard used by them, I had an attorney take a look, and they suggested adding a couple things. Their standard form didn't have addresses/phone numbers. Just Name and signature space

Careful mentioning that around here. People hate when folks basically steal the food of the professionals table by working for free.

I reckon, this was a low budget job... But, I understand. Good tip, Thanks

I detect some sarcasm there, but in case my radar is off...

It's a promo film for the hospital - I don't see any value to using hired actors over the actual staff.

Extreme example, but has anyone looked at BlackMagic's promo material lately? Their "production crew" look like they belong on the other side of the camera. :)

I work mostly in healthcare and have for a few decades and when I started it was almost all models and today it's usually employees and even real patients but not to save money but for credibility.....

It does make sense. They understand.

It's also they way they look. They don't look like models usually and that when trying to convey credibility is a good thing. Most of the TV commercials in the Chicago area are also real people. Drs & actual patients and that is real.

Good luck. Stay very flexible when it comes to time. Drs have patients and are not always on time. Also remember even though many healthcare systems are non-for-profit they have budgets for these kinds of things...;)
