I'm a Senior in high school, and for our classes the past year up to now, we occasionally have to make videos. One thing that is kinda funny for the class is using a movie studios intro like 20th century fox or paramount as our intro, just to mock our video I guess.
We have the videos posted online, however my dad is angry because he is concerned I could be liable for being sued for including those.

Is he correct in saying that? Is there any danger in having videos that have maybe 230 videos each, unmonetized online with movie intros in them?

No, because you're not making any money off of it.

It's possible. Sometimes companies will really throw down on people, to make an example out of them. It's still considered copyright infringement, even if you're not making money.

Technically he is correct however anybody can sue you for anything for any reason in this great country.

Realistically if 20th Century Fox actually gave a shit which is unlikely, they would under the provision of the DMCA Act, enact their right to issue a Takedown notice to the site that hosts the copyrighted contact. In your case this is probably YouTube.

The law makes the SITE liable if they don't comply with the takedown notice within 24 hours of receipt. Basically if anybody would be sued, Youtube would be sued. Not you. At worst they will ban your account but you wont get in any real trouble.
