    I am an actor. The only copy I have of several things I have been in have been purchased through iTunes. I need to get copies of the scenes I am in for my acting reel (which is given to casting directors). I don't want to make copies of the entire episodes, just the scenes I am in. Does anybody know how I can do this? I have asked the studios for the clips, but that went nowhere.

    I think that the DRM protection in iTunes will stop you.

    Yea, the content sold in iTunes is generally for our viewing pleasure - you really aren’t going to get that you want due to DRM. It’s not really for advertising purposes It’s also possible that Apple doesn’t have the rights to do what you want either.

    You are kind of at the mercy of the studios. Perhaps you can contact your SAG representative to get some assistance in getting material. Even if it will involve some cost of sorts.
