as for the copyrighted footage don't worry at all about it. it's definitely
fair use if you're doing it for educational purposes, and you won't be
hurting the profits of the copyright owner at all from using their material
in your movie. we all need to be less afraid of media corporations

as for printing, there will be differences depending on the stocks that you
use in terms of latitudes and color saturation. i'm not really en expert on
film stocks, though, so i couldn't help you there
