I have to do a short 2-5min film as an introduction of myself to the class. I know you need permission to use artist's music in films, but I was just curious if there was something in the copyright (or someplace else) that basically allows me to use the music without having to deal with contacting artists? Since its for school and it's just a simple project, I obviously wont be selling or even putting it in my portfolio.

If I do have to contact the artist, how exactly would I go about doing that? Do I try to contact them directly or deal with their label?

I think it's fine as long as you aren't making a profit.

It's fine. You're not publishing it.

I remember way back in highschool one of my friend actually contacted the Sissor Sister's agent to use their music in an ICT video project. They actually wrote back to him aswell, saying it's fine aslong as it's not for profit.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

It's fine as long as you credit the artists. If it's going on Youtube put a thing in the description about how you aren't making any profit off it and its for educational purposes only.

If you have enough time, making your own music (if you have the resources and ability) is pretty awesome and very rewarding, especially if people don't recognize it and ask you about it.

yes, you may use it legally for free.

Fair use. It is an educational multimedia project for a course.

Very handy to know, thanks.

And I appreciate all the responses (even those who called me a pussy :p my concern wasn't the labels, more-so how my professor and/or the college would handle it lol)
