Incorporating archival footage into your doc can bring a level of authenticity unmatched by other means, furthering the film’s impact and reach. With literally thousands of hours of footage from almost all of modern history’s major events, the biggest hurdle in using archival footage, may just be in knowing where and how to start looking. Footage firms, archives, and libraries, all exist to help you with this process. From initial research to negotiating the final licensing fee, we’ll discuss every aspect of using archival footage in your film.
