After deciding to use The Kills soundtrack 'Sour Cherry' for our film trailer. Because it's copyright we thought it would be a sensible idea to email the band or their management, to ask for permission or inform them of us using their music. This is the letter Rachel sent to 'The Kills'. Unfortunatly we didn't get a reply but decided going ahead with using the track.
"Hi I am Rachel Talbot from Heworth Grange Comprehensive School 6th Form in Gateshead. I am working in a group on a media project, making a trailer for a horror film, and we have become very interested in using your song, 'Sour cherry'. Is it possible that we would be able to use this in our trailer? The only people who will see it is the examination board and my group. I can always send the finish project to you also."
