Citizens United Productions

Thought Equity Motion’s specialized political/non-profit team worked with Citizens United Productions, the production arm of a conservative non-profit organization, to license editorial footage to communicate key political messages in its latest DVDs: America at Risk and Fire from the Heartland. For America at Risk, a documentary about the dangers facing America after the attacks on 9/11, the producer licensed anti-terrorism news footage from the BBC Motion Gallery and CBS News collections, including a news clip from May 2010 about the failed Times Square bomber in New York. Fire from the Heartland, a film that tells the story of the American conservative woman, features clips of well-known conservative female political figures including Margret Thatcher, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, on the campaign trail and giving speeches.
