Below are a few commonly asked questions about our Footage Assurance services. For additional questions or to have a project evaluated contact, rightsandclearances@thoughtequity.com or  

call 720-382-2879.

What is Footage Assurance and why does Thought Equity Motion offer it?

At times, it may not be possible to identify or locate individuals that are visible in footage you want to use in your project. In these instances, Thought Equity Motion may be able to provide “Footage Assurance,” which gives additional protection to you and your project. If Footage Assurance is available for footage, Thought Equity Motion assumes the risk associated with your use of the footage in your project.

Can I purchase Footage Assurance if individuals or property owners in the footage I want to license can’t be identified or located for clearance?

Generally we may be able to offer Footage Assurance for footage where it is not possible to locate or contact the parties visible in the footage.

How much will it cost to have Thought Equity Motion evaluate my project to determine if other rights or permissions are required?

Thought Equity’s initial assessment to determine if clearance services are recommended or Footage Assurance is available is free of charge.

To have your project evaluated contact your Thought Equity Motion representative or contact rightsandclearances@thoughtequity.com or call 720-382-2879.
