    Post Fair Use Movie Clip

    I'm hoping to use a short clip from a James Bond film in a short film I'm doing as a thesis project. In the scene, the character is sitting on the couch watching the movie and several seconds will show on screen. It's important that the audience realizes that it's a Bond film.

    Am I protected under fair use because it's insubstantial and incidental?
