FAQ


Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or feedback.


ON WHAT BASIS DO YOU SUPPLY CLIPS?

Footage is supplied to our clients by means of a licence which means that the footage can only be used in a named production for a specified period.  It may not be re-used in other productions other than that named in the licence agreement.   Nor may it be sold or rented.  The Clips & Footage team must be contacted in advance should further usage or a re-licence be required. 


HOW DOES THE PRICING STRUCTURE WORK?

Licence fees vary depending upon the nature of the project.  So, footage cleared for a museum exhibit will be at the lower end of the pricing structure while a commercial clearing worldwide will be at the higher end.  We like to work collaboratively with our clients and are therefore happy to negotiate a competitive rate whatever your project. 


WHAT SORT OF CLEARANCES ARE REQUIRED?

Again, clearances vary depending upon the type of project.  While the majority of our footage does not require further clearances, our team is expert on guiding clients through the rights' clearance procedure. 


HELP! I'VE BEEN GIVEN A BRIEF BUT NEED SOME HELP WITH IDEAS

We like to consider ourselves part of our clients' creative team and love to come up with suitable ideas and clips.  Our team has worked on many projects and has developed an eye for that perfect shot. 


HOW SOON CAN I SEE FOOTAGE THAT IS NOT DIGITIZED ON YOUR SITE?

Our friendly team can supply bespoke low res footage for viewing purposes by return. 


ON WHAT FORMATS CAN YOU DELIVER MATERIAL?

Most of our footage is now delivered on all sorts of PAL and NTSC file formats but we can, of course, supply material on digital tape formats if required. 


I WORK TO TIGHT DEADLINES, HOW SOON CAN YOU DELIVER HIGH RES MATERIAL?

Master material can generally be turned around in hours.
