Founded in 1957, Producers Library is the country's oldest and largest continuously operating independent stock footage house. Our footage library encompasses the highest-quality 16mm, 35mm, high-definition, and video stock footage and photographs for professional filmmakers. The very best of this footage and high-quality celebrity photos are now available on our website.
The history of Producers Library reaches back more than 50 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 50+ years of service by presenting our best footage online. As we continue to add more content on a daily basis, our collection will expand to include current copyrighted clips and vintage public domain stock footage. We're also working on adding other materials for post production. Footage and stills may now be viewed and ordered online.
For the very best Hollywood, location, nature, and newsreel stock footage and more, choose Producers Library. We may be able to locate vintage and contemporary stock footage or photos that are not yet on the website because they are waiting in our vaults. Please contact us with questions about footage licensing, fees, and the ordering process at (800) 944-2135 or (818) 752-9097.
