Attention amateur concert videographers and collectors of trainwreck footage: Casey Affleck wants your handiwork for his upcoming film on actor-turned-rapper Joaquin Phoenix. And he's serious about it.
Perhaps in a knowing nod to the, uh, overwhelming amount of amateur Joaquin footage floating around on YouTube (most of it catastrophic in nature), Affleck -- who, along with a film crew, has been with his brother-in-law Phoenix throughout his bizarre ride through the world of hip hop -- has started JoaqDoc.com, a Web site that allows users to upload their own videos of Phoenix rapping on -- and subsequently off -- stage.
Of course, whether or not your footage ends up on Affleck's film seems to be entirely up to him ... but he wants you to be very clear -- via some rather impressive (and lengthy) legalese in the site's "Terms and Conditions" section -- that once you upload it, you might as well kiss it goodbye for all eternity:
"By posting any content, images, photos, video, sounds, profiles, works of authorship, or any other materials (collectively, 'Content') on the Website, you hereby grant to Flemmy [Affleck's production company], a non-exclusive, fully-paid and royalty-free, worldwide license (with the right to sublicensees) to use, copy, modify, adapt, translate, publicly perform, publicly display, store, reproduce, transmit, and distribute such Content in any and all media and by any means now known or hereafter devised that Flemmy, in its sole discretion, shall deem appropriate."
Dang, man ... who thought footage of a bearded dude in Grandma shades tumbling off a stage would warrant such wordy legal wrangling? Still, if you're not frightened away by all that, you can upload your Joaq clips right now. Just don't blame us when Phoenix and Affleck show up to claim your first-born son. Making films is serious business, baby!
