Founded in 1957, Producers Library is the oldest and largest continuously operating independent stock footage house in the US.
Our footage library encompasses the highest-quality 16mm, 35mm, HD, 2K and 4K video stock footage and photographs for professional filmmakers. The very best of this footage is now available on our website.
The history of Producers Library reaches back more than 60 years. In the 1950s, major studios shut independent producers out of their stock footage libraries. For the Indies, there was no place to deposit footage for licensing or to access the work of other independents. The former head librarians of MGM and RKO joined together to provide these services to independent producers by creating Producers Library.
Existing management took over in 1986 and rapidly expanded its holdings. We are now proud to celebrate our 60+ years of service by presenting our best footage online. Since purchasing a film scanner two years ago we have added thousands of new clips by scanning film to HD for our web-site as well as simultaneously creating 2K DPX files from our 16mm prints and 4K DPX files from our 35mm negatives. HD files and stills may now be ordered on-line.
For the very best in current/archival location shots, historical and Hollywood clips and out-takes choose Producers Library. Please contact us with questions about footage licensing, fees, and the ordering process at 818 752 9097.
