Proprietary Content:

Our exclusive collection includes critical "man on the street" video footage of the World Trade Center attack on 9/11, vintage home movies, and an expansive video library from the 1980s and 1990s. We offer various royalty-free licensing tiers suitable for non-broadcast, broadcast, and feature film projects, providing the flexibility to meet your project's specific requirements.

Non-Proprietary Content:

Our extensive range of non-proprietary content encompasses films, cartoons, short subjects, television shows, TV commercials, public service announcements (PSAs), newsreels, presidential speeches, and works produced by the U.S. military and government. This content is primarily in the public domain, and we provide source documentation and licensing to that effect.

Our Commitment Since 2004:

We specialize in uncompressed film transfers and high-resolution spirit data scans (2K, 4K, 6.5K) from the best prints available. Offering native video files and ProRes 422HQ master files, we ensure top-tier quality for every project. With quick access through download links provided within 24 hours and detailed documentation meeting E&O insurance standards, we're dedicated to making history accessible and vivid for filmmakers, historians, and enthusiasts around the globe.
