The Concert Band at my college is going to be putting on a theme concert this weekend, the theme being movie music. We were thinking about setting up a multimedia-type presentation where, as we’re playing the music from a specific movie, stills from that movie are projected onto a big screen above the band.
Is this legal? I would think this would fall under fair use, since an individual still can hardly be considered to be a substantial portion of the work as a whole. On the other hand, it probably matters how many stills are taken from each movie. Suppose we used, on average, 35 stills from each movie? We will be charging admission for the concert ($3), but we are also a non-profit group.
Any ideas on the legality of this?
