Content Clearance

Tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll come straight back to you with a response, detailing out all the possibilities with a guide to prices upfront, as well as outlining any potential pitfalls.

We have a bespoke approach for every job depending on the brief, budget and schedule; we can deep-dive into research and find content from some of the worlds best cinematographers or we scan supply only pre-cleared content within a set budget and everywhere in between!

We then get to work compiling a range of compelling content and once you make the creative decisions, we do the final round of fee negotiations, budget sign off, paperwork and payments, licensing and master delivery.

Mood Films

We help agencies and directors win new business all day, every day, with footage research for pitch and mood films.

Whatever the subject matter we’ll work closely with you to realise your vision as closely as possible. We can then edit in house or work with your editors.

The movie files we’ll cut for you contain a broad selection of the best, on-brief footage we can find that you can review many times before you make final approval for the edit.


Working closely with the director and producer while tapping in to a huge bank of sources to locate hundreds of images for treatment briefs, managing layout and style where needed. We can also provide professional pitch writers to give your presentation that winning edge.

Investigative Research

From the Mexican free diving champion to Turkish skater girls, we find real people for ads.

At the very beginning of a project, agencies will ask us to find suitable candidates with remarkable personal stories or specific looks to be brand representatives or to star in commercials.

Drawing on our global contacts in art, culture, music, film and photography we discover people who fit the agency’s vision. We handle initial interviews and pre-contract negotiations to ensure that our clients can make confident casting decisions and that everyone’s rights are protected and respected.
