I am afraid this is too vague to give good advice but the first thing I
would say is that he should be doing this HIMSELF. Much may depend on the
nature of the publication and IF the publisher REQUIRES written permission
from rights holders. It a frankly a murky and controversial area but
a lot of publishers are terrified of being sued and thus make writers
get permission. If he needs written permission , he is going to have
to track down each films rights holder. I hear studios charge around
$250 per still but maybe more. Kino never charges BUT we often
get requests asking for WORLDWIDE rights which we can rarely grant
Anyway make this Prof do his own work and figure out what his publisher
requires and how to get it
