I am sure most of you have more knowledge regarding this kind of things.
I am working on my Game industry oriented portfolio as a composer/sound designer.
The problem is that my first two game titles are still in development and I have not got any footage that I can use as a background for my work.
How does it work with using others footage, such a game trailers, available for the public on youtube etc...
How does it look like from the legal side.
In fact it wouldn't be used for profit and obviously I would add an information and a link to the creator for every sample that would be used.
I sent some requests to game publishers for using some short samples of their game trailers, most refused and still waiting to hear from others.
I don't get it. Samples are not good quality, they are not losing their profit this way, and additionaly its a kind of a promotion for them.
Can any one help?
