Most recently, we announced an exclusive partnership with The New York Times, where producers, filmmakers and educators can license raw footage from The New York Times video library for their own productions. The HD video in our New York Times Collection comes from the compelling original segments produced regularly by New York Times journalists around the world. For example, raw footage from The New York Times original segments such as Skateboarding in Afghanistan, On Par With Bill Pennington, The Poorest Struggle with Donor Fatigue: Haiti and Foreign Aid and Trouble in Thailand’s South Providences can be found in Thought Equity Motion’s New York Times Collection. Additionally, we are also licensing select New York Times’s TimesTalks raw footage, which features interviews with notable figures in the sports, entertainment, art and political world.

Check out some of these segments:

ADVERTISING/BRANDING: Thought Equity Motion worked with imc², a brand engagement agency, to license archival Winter Olympic Game- and skiing-related footage for an online video to promote Secret’s “Let Her Jump” campaign, an effort to make women’s ski jumping an official Olympic Winter Games event in 2014. Let Her Jump is being promoted via Facebook where supporters are invited to watch the promotional video, which educates viewers on the background and purpose of the Let Her Jump initiative. In addition to the video, visitors are asked to sign an online petition to Let Her Jump in 2014 and become a fan of the campaign’s Facebook page to help spread the word. The online only video and campaign launched around the Olympic Winter Games and will run through 2014. Click here to watch the video and click here to visit the Facebook page.

Stop Babies + Puppies

“Make Art. Not Clichés” - that’s the slogan for the 2010 AICP Show & Next Awards Call for Entries, created by a team at VCU Brancenter. The campaign uses the Stop Babies + Puppies theme (the ultimate in ad clichés) to promote awareness for the Show, which is annually archived at The Museum of Modern Art. We provided some of the footage used in the Cliché Ad Machine-which allows users to create their own cliché video ads with shots of babies and puppies. Check it out for yourself by clicking here.
