Hey all,
My name is Jared and I'm a film student in NJ. I'm working on my culminating project, and would like to use the song "You're gonna go far kid" in the film. This is not for profit, and will be entered into local and possibly national film festivals. Does anybody have any idea who i can contact by either email to phone to help accomplish this? Any tips would be much appreciated.
-Jared

Hey Jared,
Wlecome To This Forum. I don't know where and who call, but I agree that you use "YGGF,K" for a movie :)

I'm not sure exactly who you would contact, i'm sure someone who is more knowledgeable on the subject will be able to help you.

The band is managed by http://rebelwaltz.com/ they can be contacted at info@rebelwaltz.com.

This also may be helpful (found it on the rebelwaltz website).

In general, for licensing you would usually contact the publishing company and not the management.

If this was for school, it would probably fall under 'fair use,' but since it's for something in film festivals that may not apply. Good luck!

At www.sonybmg.com I found Columbia Records (The Offspring's record label which is owned by Sony BMG) telephone number.

The American number for Columbia Records is 212 833 4000

On the website you will find International numbers if you're from outside of the US.

I think it would be fine with the Offspring but since you have to go the official way, good luck!
