free video production?
We produce video content for you, in exchange for the right to keep some of the footage. This type of footage is referred to as stock footage. Stock footage is video content that can be used in other video projects. Stock footage is beneficial to video content producers as it saves them from shooting new material. See examples of stock footage here.
What's the catch?
We need footage! We are a video production company that specializes in stock footage. We use it in various ways and offer it for sale to other projects needing that type of footage.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We film scenes unique to your trade or industry at your location. Depending on the footage we either give you the clips and/or produce a 30 to 60 second video about what you do. You can use the clips and edited video however you like.
Released VS Unreleased footage vs Professional models
There are two types of footage resulting from a trade...Released and Unreleased. Released footage is accompanied by a signed model release. This means that the recognizable people appearing in a clip give permission for us to use it. Unreleased footage is filmed in such a way that the people in it are not recognizable. Here are examples:
A third option is for us to bring professional models and film them in addition (or instead). This is also free.
What do you get?
For Released Footage: If you permit us to film released footage, we will produce a 30 to 60 second video about your business...free of charge. You are also given the footage to use however you would like.
For Unreleased Footage: If you permit us to film unreleased footage we give you the clips...free of charge.
Here is an example of one of our stock footage trades:
