Looking for great-looking HD footage for a professional project. The footage needed is family-oriented: mostly scenes with families, especially kids and pets, but some of it can be almost anything.
We need footage that looks great, but no professional lights or gear- natural light and practicals only. So the locations and the talent need to be naturally photogenic. Think of it as as the nicest-looking obviously amateur footage ever.
G-rated footage needed.
80% of the footage should be handheld, 20% tripod. We will only need a few minutes of usable footage, so if you shoot 10 – 15 minutes we’ll probably have plenty to choose from.
We will need model releases from all people whose face is recognizable in the video, and if they’re under 18, we’ll need parental/guardian releases also. We will provide you with a standard release.
If you are interested, please email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info:
– if you have existing footage, what the subject matter is, and what format/frame rate
– if you have the opportunity to shoot an event over the next couple weeks, a little info about the event/situation
– the date you would be able to get the footage to us
– link to a demo reel of your camerawork
This would be a non-exclusive buyout of the footage, so include how much you would charge for the footage. Payment is TBD, and depends on the quality and quantity of the footage.
Thanks so much for your time,

Hi Sam –
Silly question – Why don’t you just use royalty free stock video. Digital Juice has a couple of HD libraries for reasonable prices ($250 per library) – http://www.digitaljuice.com/products/product_volumes.asp?pvid=30.
Artbeats.com also has nice video, but at steeper prices.
Footage Firm (http://www.footagefirm.com) also has some nice footage for very cheap.

Because then he’d actually have to pay something for the footage he charges for.
