How does licensing "stock footage" actually work? The internet caused the "stock footage" industry to boom in the last decade, making it easier than ever before to find stunning prime footage to use in any project like a social media post or a indie film. If you want to use footage in a project you need to get a license that matches the specifications of it. Generally, the price of the license reflects the number of people in your audience and varies according to these three main points:

1 - Period: How long you intend to use it such as 1 year, 2 years, 5 years or ''In Perpetuity''
2 - Media: How will the project will be shown such as Theatre, TV, Contest, Instagram, Vimeo
3 - Territory: Where will the project will be shown such as citywide, countrywide or worldwide

Upon these details, we will give you a quote for a license that will allow you to do exactly what you intend to do with the footage. That way you have an irrefutable right to use the footage and that guaranties you won't get in trouble for mis-using it.
