Permission to use CC in student film

PostprodPostprod Member Posts: 2
Hello!

I'm working on a short film for school and in one of our scenes we see a character play Cookie Clicker on their computer. We can't film this shot unless we show our teachers that we have cleared any rights or at least gotten permission for it.

Do you know if the game is copyrighted or requires clearance before it appears in any film? We will simply see it for about 4 seconds.

I can't find any where or anyone responsible for such inquiries. If we do need permission, who can we contact?
I can't get a hold of Julien anywhere :/

Thank you so much and have a great day :)

    It could fall under fair use? I'm no expert though. Also, what's the film about?
    You can try his twitter or tumblr

    Thanks, fellas :)
    It's our graduation film at Stockholm School of Dramatic Arts. A short film about bullying in the digital age, centered around a teacher/student relationship.

    Broadcast rights in Sweden require we show written consent for the use of any creative material. So even if its fair use or unregistered, we must seek written permission.

    I wrote him almost everywhere, I hope he replies before next week.

    Any further leads are very welcome.

    Again, thanks a lot!

    I don’t think I’d ask permission from Notch if I make a Minecraft gameplay video

    I think it really doesn’t matter

    His film is not a Cookie Clicker gameplay video

    If it's a legal requirement in Sweden to obtain written consent, then it wouldn't be okay for him to feature it without said consent.
