Policy and Procedures for Video Production
To view the full policy please open OUC Video Policy FINAL (1)
Orleans United Church(OUC) provides a video outreach service to extend our faith
outreach to those beyond the church building. It is an extension of our ability to spread
God’s goodness and to provide our community, our region and beyond with a visual
representation of the Orleans United family.
We recognize and appreciate the various gifts of our congregation. At the same time,
we respect the personal nature of each member’s faith journey, be it personal and
private to outgoing and public. To this end, as Christian citizens in this world, we strive
to provide a safe and secure environment for worship and participation. The following
policy and procedures support our goal of providing a safe and sensitive environment to
express our faith.
The policy addresses two general areas; the use of copyrighted material and intellectual
property in video productions, and the protection of personal privacy. As the experience
of producing video evolves, so will the policy.
The procedures address the way in which the policy will be applied in the actual
production and post-production of video, both recorded and live broadcasts. The OUC
Communications Group will develop and enhance the procedures consistent with the
This policy and the associated procedures cover video and audio recording by and for
Orleans United Church, and recordings of members of OUC that may be made by third
parties at OUC events.
Recordings made by third parties on OUC premises, of public events or of third party
events, are not subject to this policy. OUC expects that any recordings made on OUC
premises will follow relevant law and respectful practice.
