*However, in a total douche move, nobody from Grand Valley State University’s Image and Sound class asked Zack for permission to use his script.
Film students. If you find a cool script on the site, don’t make a douche move. Ask the writer for permission to use the work. 99.99% of the time, they will be delighted for you to use their work. Heck, I will even help you contact the writer. But, please, don’t just take a work from the site without asking the writer. You might end up being labeled a douche. Remember, the moment you post your video based on a stolen piece of work to YouTube, it is no longer considered “For Educational Purposes Only”. YouTube is a commercial site that derives revenue from advertising.
