Highly Visual Archive Guidelines and FAQs
How do I find what I’m looking for?
Most files are named according to camera, location, season (Wet or Dry) and a brief description. The Vimeo search interface is a little clunky so wide searches will yield the best results. For example - if you are looking for an elephant herd walking in Amboseli you could search for “ANP elephant walk”. The search feature is in the top right of the aerial or long lens showcase page.
What if I can’t find what I’m looking for?
Please fill in a footage request form and we will see if we can find anything that meets your criteria or we will bear in mind your requirements and try and get the shots you need.

The Clip seems too fast why is this?
Some clips are filmed off speed (at 50FPS or more) but are playing back realtime. You can either change the playback speed on the player or you can download the clip and check the frame rate.
The clip seems too bright/dark or has too much contrast - can anything be done?
Most footage is filmed in Log, but a LUT has been applied to the watermarked files to make them easier to use. There will be a lot of latitude in the grade for any clips purchased as the original files will be supplied.
Can I download footage to see how it looks in my timeline?
You can download individual watermarked clips from the Vimeo interface. Alternatively you can request access to our offline Dropbox folder which contains all watermarked clips at 1080.
How much does footage cost?
For high end broadcast productions the standard cost is approximately $450 per clip (non exclusive) or $100 per second (exclusive). Lesser rates or pro-bono rates will be considered for non exclusive use of clips for education or student film makers on a case by case basis.
