I useally have my camara guy follow about 6 or so feet behind me so when I approach someone I have time to talk to them before the camara guy gets there and by then they don't really care, the hardest part is getting them to sign a release before they walk off otherwise your running after them and that can somtimes freak them out.

You need a third person with release forms to catch them as soon as the effect is over.

I had my lawyer draft one up for me. you can find them on the net or if you decide to write your own (I don't suggest that) make sure it inculdes what the purpose of the footage is and that the person signing the form is aware of what the use of the film is and that they are giving permission for you to to what you want with the footage in editing.

some lawyers will draft one up for you for pretty cheap or even have them on hand already. best bet check the net first.

Oh and if you don't have the money for release forms or the people for it, just have them say there name and that it's ok to use they're image on film and it works the same way more or less, but it's still better to have a release form..
