Remote Helicopter Cam
I am a college student doing an exchange in London. I have been filming a lot of what I've been up to, with consent forms and so forth. I have a remote controlled helicopter with a camera. I want to use it to shoot wide area and scenic shots.
Naturally, there will be people in the areas I am filming. Do you think I need to get all of their permissions before/after filming them? I am particularly worried about my Halloween shots...I have forms from individuals I spoke to, but not from the overhead crowd pans, saw it was impractical to try to get a consent form from everyone.
No one is easily identifiable, as it is shot from about 50ft up just to get a feel for the size and energy of the crowd, but several people are in outfits they probably wouldn't show their grandparents.
That said, I am vaguely worried that if I use this footage, I could open myself up for lawsuits or the like.
