Broadcast, Telecast & Recording
The video and/or sound recording of a performance at Arts Centre Melbourne for any purpose
requires the written approval of an appropriate representative of the Trust.
Presenters proposing to videotape or telecast performances should arrange a briefing with your
Event Coordinator from Presenter Services.
Recordings require the presenter to have obtained the necessary clearances from the performers
taking part and to give certain undertakings in relation to copyright, and payment to technicians.
The Recording Form (Appendix D), forms part of the Presenter Licence Agreement. Broadcast
allowance and associated on-costs apply for the recording for live or delayed broadcast. Details
are in Appendix D of the Presenter Licence Agreement.
Video Recording
Where approval has been granted to a presenter for a public performance to be given under
television conditions, all publicity and advertising for the attraction must clearly state that the
performance will be televised and that such conditions will apply. It follows that arrangements to
televise a performance cannot be entered into after tickets have been sold to the public.
Sound Recording
Sound recording of a performance for commercial or non-commercial performances requires the
approval of an appropriate representative of the Trust. Details are in Appendix D of the Presenter
Licence Agreement. Broadcast Allowance and associated on costs apply to the recording of live or
delayed broadcast.
Archival Recording
Archival recordings are a simple record of the event. It is assumed that any flaws in the final
recording will be inconsequential. If your recording is of importance, please contact the Sound
Department. Details are in Appendix D of the Presenter Licence Agreement
Recordings, other than archival, are subject to separate arrangement with the Operations Manager,
Sound. Please note extra sound technicians may be required to operate the equipment.
Photography
Photography is prohibited anywhere in the venue without the prior authority of an appropriate
representative of the Trust. Permission to photograph performances is not unreasonably withheld
provided the taking of photographs is arranged in such a way so as not to cause nuisance either to
patrons or to performers.
Under no circumstances will patrons be permitted to take photographs in the auditorium.
The removal and reinstatement of seating for filming or photographic purposes will be charged to
the Presenter.
