I've been creating a short animation (1 min) to demonstrate and showcase a FUI (Futuristic User Interface). No one else was involved, other than third party advice and support. No unions involved.
A summary of potential sources to credit would include:
- Myself (everything not mentioned below)
- Music (third party, CC BY NC)
- 1 x 3D Model (third party, CC)
- based on Novel xxx.
I was also thinking of adding a "Special thanks to" the following
- Supervisor (support, feedback, etc)
- Employer (support in studies)
- Wife (long suffering in my academic pursuits)
- Maxon (for Cinema 3D, free for students)
- Adobe (for AE, discounted for students)
However, basically I'm it in terms of direct involvement in the project.
Based on comments here I could just do something like:
A film by
Or alternatively I could go the path of
Then I would add something like:
Music "tite", by composer, CC-SA
Based on the novel title, published, publisher?
Model xyz by modeller CC-SA
Graph Sample by source CC
Special thanks to
Supervisor Wife Employer

Does the above seem reasonable? I'm a bit iffy on how to credit the author of the novel that the short is based on. Also what do about recognising Maxon and Adobe, or maybe I don't even need to go that far? I have to mention CC for assets that include as well as obligations on my work to be CC as a result.
Btw, I read through What title(s) should a one-person film crew receive in the credit role?, but it does not apply, as in my situation, I am a one person for everything, not just film.
