I'm looking for ethics advice for my first editing portfolio website...
I'm an emerging video editor, and I'm putting together my first website portfolio. I have two ethical questions I'd like to get some editors' opinions on...
I'd like to show examples of work I've done in the past on my new site, but I'm not sure about the ethics of posting videos I've created for companies, since I don't own the videos - the companies do. Every video I want to include in my portfolio has been posted to Youtube by the company it was made for. Is it okay to embed those Youtube videos into my site? Is it okay to download them and put them on my site?
If I did 95% of the editing on a video, but another editor did some work as well, is it ok for me to include it in my reel?
If I edited the videos while I was working at a video production / editing company, can I use those videos on my site? Or does it not count because the company I was with was in charge of editing and just happened to assign me those particular projects?
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
