The first place I’d check


The first place I’d check is for public domain ephemeral productions. So they have loads of newsreels from the war, the few war movies now in public domain and training or informational films. I have to watch myself when I visit the site. There is so much cool stuff, usually available in at least the quality needed for video CD’s (and sometimes DVD’s) that I start a download frenzy that can takes weeks to deal with. But I did put together a comic PSA using a variety of the films available for download & use. (Which reminds me, I should post it on my MySpace page.)

But anyway, for my money nothing beats the completely free for value & variety of material available.

Good luck with your productions.
