SPECIALISING IN HIGH QUALITY, LOW COST, PUBLIC DOMAIN HISTORICAL FOOTAGE

HOW WE PRICE OUR MATERIAL

When you buy Public Domain material from us you no longer need worry about the rights you acquire.
We charge a one-time buy-out fee, not a per-second rate as other stock footage archives.
Once you have bought the physical tape, it is yours to use forever, wherever, in all media and in any programme. You will not need to come back to us to renew a contract or to pay any additional fees.

To simplify matters, we have set our pricing structure to parallel the system at the National Archives in Washington: our footage is sold on a source-reel basis, which tend to run at 6-11 minutes. For example, if you need one shot or sequence of a particular subject, it does not matter how long that shot is – you pay for the one source reel it originates from. If you use several shots from that same reel, it still counts as one.

Our prices compare favourably to the cost of going directly to the Archives, but without many of the associated research costs and bureaucratic delays; and often, because we are aware of the desire for quality, our master tapes will surpass what can be received directly from the various sources.

Ordering previews
We transfer all the items you have chosen from the detailed list onto preview files:
5 pounds Sterling per items (minimum charge 50 pounds).
We may discount for jobs where the items can be duplicated straight through and do not need constant monitoring.


Ordering Master material
The cost per reel diminishes according to the number you order at any one time.

Prices in British Pounds
1 reel £210
2 - 3 reels @ £150 per reel
4 - 6 reels @ £140 per reel
7 - 10 reels @ £135 per reel
11- 19 reels @ £130 per reel
20- 40 reels @ £125 per reel
41+ reels by negotiation


The cost per reel is the same if you ask for the whole reel or just a section of it.
The difference will only be affected by duplication costs which are based on the length and number of clips ordered.

On very large orders, we are happy to discuss tailor-made pricing options.
