    Dear DC Action News,

    I’m working on the film Sollers Point written and directed by Matt Porterfield. We are currently in pre-production for this independent film in Baltimore, and we were hoping to get clearance from the DC Action Network to use news footage from your organization in the background of scenes in the film.
    Here’s a little blurb about the film and its writer/director
    Sollers Point is a feature length independent film about a young man’s re-entry into society in a struggling community. The lead role of Keith will be played by McCaul Lombardi, and his father and housemate will be played by Jim Belushi.
    Do you think this is something you’d be interested in helping us with? We’d love to feature your news footage.

    Thanks so much,
    Gillian Waldo

      You are free to use the footage, all out original material is hereby placed in the public domain. We are not able to proivde signed contracts etc as the security requirements of our work forbid the use of legal names, addresses etc. As long as thats OK with you feel free to use it in the film. If you are worried about proof of rights screenshot this comment and save it with your legal materials.
