Shot Request Overview

Thank you for responding to our Shot Request! You’ll find more details below on how to proceed, so we can show your footage to the client for potential licensing.

NOTE: Please remember that a small percentage of clients seek our assistance with research, so it is very important you are uploading/sending Master footage to us as often as available.
