Designed for filmmakers and photographers, mRelease makes getting releases easier than you ever thought it could be. Appearance Release (a.k.a. Model Release or Talent Release), Property Release, Location Release, and Crew Release are all included.
"Having this sort of tool in your pocket as a filmmaker is incredibly helpful and can make your shoot more efficient - but having this tool as a photographer can be a life saver." – Vincent Laforet
"During my years in production, I've seen quite a few projects get derailed because producers forgot to get signed talent and location releases. [...] Bottom line, you should ALWAYS get SIGNED RELEASES. And that's why I'm telling every filmmaker I know to get this app. It might just save your ass. mRelease is never leaving my iPhone. Simple as that." – Taz Goldstein, Hand Held Hollywood
A full set of sample releases produced by mRelease can be downloaded from www.mReleaseApp.com
Once you have entered basic information about your shoot, for each release you just add some quick details about your subject, an image from the built-in camera or photo library, and get a touch-screen signature – it is that easy! The app creates, stores, and emails you a pdf file of the signed release, including the embedded photo of your subject.
mRelease is paperless (not to mention pen-less). Forget about bringing a stack of printed releases to your shoot, as well as the frustration of not having them with you when a once-in-a-lifetime shot appears. With mRelease, if you have your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, you have your releases. Easily organize your completed releases by shoot, production, date, name, and type. Send pdf releases to anybody in your contact list.
Create any of these forms:
* Appearance Release: Often referred to as a Model Release by photographers, and a Talent Release by filmmakers. This form gives you permission to use images, video, or sound recordings of an adult or a minor.
* Property Release: Gives permission to use recorded media of property: objects, artwork, animals, etc.
* Location Release: Gives permission to use recorded media of a location, as well as permission to bring equipment and crew onto the location.
* Crew Release: Gives permission to use media recorded by adult or minor crew members on your shoot, as well as their own appearance in any recordings.
If you are a professional filmmaker or photographer, student, hobbyist, or anybody else who needs a release, mRelease is designed to make your life easier so you can focus on creating the content you love.
What's New in Version 1.0.3

* Compatibility with iOS 4 multitasking.
Great app - with a few updates, can be FANTASTIC.
First off -- this truly needs a full resolution iPad version, it would be totally amazing. I've been using my iPad on set and it's a great asset. I think it would impress the hell out of people to be walking around with your releases on the full resolution iPad screen. Also, importable/adjustable forms would be really terrific. Those are my only gripes, really. Maybe a file-save folder/system as well. But if you're in the field where you need these things, don't hesitate. It looks really impressive too around others.
Please get this to work!
Like others have said, this is a great idea. The execution just needs to be stepped up. My PA turned me on to it and put it on my phone for me. She did a sample one for me and showed me how easy it was. Sweet! So I'm on location... I fire it up and.... nothing. Can't figure it out, so I reach into my bag and pull out the old paper forms. : ( I so want this to work because it is exactly the right idea. Hopefully the next version will be better.
Great App - needs two things
This is one great app that provides an easy to view contract once it is created.
1. My legal department requires us to use their approved release. This app needs to allow the user to import contracts from outside sources
2. There is no help function or way to contact the developer from within the app
If these two were included it would earn four or five stars.
