Everybody on Earth should see the film “Before the Flood”, the National Geographic documentary on the consequences of climate change made by Oscar award winners Leonardo diCaprio and Fisher Stevens (director). Starring Ban Ki-moon, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Pope Francis … And our footage, of course – anything else would be unimaginable given Framepool’s longstanding focus on this area!
The American environmental protection agency NOAA reports that the humpback whale populations are no longer threatened with extinction. The international protection measures are effective. Eileen Sobeck says “This message is an ecological success story.” “Whales, including the humpback, serve an important role in our marine environment. Separately managing humpback whale populations that are largely independent of each other allows us to tailor conservation approaches for each population.” We congratulate all environmentalists involved on their success. The beautiful footage shots of humpback whales which were shot by Didier Noirot and other cameramen enjoin us to ensure that the populations will need further support to recover. The footage has been selected and prepared by Framepool and can be licensed for all kinds of use.
More about Framepool and its offers. Framepool supports the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. The use of stock footage helps to reduce carbon oxide – see more at the green cart.

This Earth Day, we want the whole world to love Earth even harder.
Using stock footage helps save the environment a vast amount of CO2. And you don’t have to cut back on quality. We have the whole world available from Film, HD to 4K. So you can see Mother Nature like you’ve never seen her before.
Splendidly stage-managed by the agency McKinney, with sexy footage from Framepool:

Autumn is here. The time of the year when nature is bursting with magical colors. The sun is shinning in a completely different angle through the leaves allowing for many possibilities to capture the beautiful images and we have done just that in our Autumn Showreel. Of course our stock footage online-shop offers a variety of other fall themes.
Volcanoes fascinate but spread fear and terror at the same time. They can devastate whole regions during a very short timeframe, but also provide the basis for new life. The lava emerging from a volcanic eruption gives rise to islands and creates mineral-rich soils where plants grow well. Thanks to these fertile soils, roughly half a billion people worldwide live in close proximity to active volcanoes. Many of them are well aware of the danger – but they take this risk in exchange for abundant crops and warm thermal water. Especially on Iceland and in Japan, bathing in hot springs is very popular. But not only the physical well-being benefits from the hot water, it is also being used for energy production.
Technical progress and economical growth are necessary – but often humans exceed natural limitations too rigorously, without looking at the potential consequences. Tragic disasters can be the result. One sad example happened exactly 50 years ago: On October 9th in 1963, a landslide and resulting tsunami devastated the North Italian townlet Longarone and numerous villages nearby. Approximately 2000 inhabitants were killed – until today nobody knows exactly how many people lost their lives.
The landslide caused the overtopping of one of the tallest dams in the world, which was built by the end of the 1950ies to meet the growing demands for industrialization and energy in Venice. Already before and during the construction period, some experts have been warning about a natural disaster – without being heard by the responsible parties. Economical interests were the first priority.
Looking at today’s situation, it doesn’t seem that mankind learned a lot from such disasters. We are destroying our nature, even in full awareness of the consequences. It’s time for a change in thinking, living and working, also in our industry. Otherwise the climate change and its impacts on our Oceans will be a catastrophe on an unprecedented scale.
The IPCC Stockholm Conference 2013 warns again of rising sea levels, an impact of climate change on the oceans. Climate change is already threatening especially the most beautiful marine life of the earth. Human influence on the climate system is clear. This is evident in most regions of the globe, as the new assessment by the IPCC concludes. Steps to avoid CO2 are possible in everyday life of all of us. We show such a step for the film production.

Thankfully, numerous initiatives have been adopted by the film, broadcast and advertising industries to reduce the toxic emissions of C02 in film production. Greenpeace recently realized a video about CO2 dangers with Framepool footage.
Framepool is pleased to be part of the film community’s effort to ensure a more healthier planet by introducing The Green Cart – license videoclips online and protect the environment. The use of stock footage helps you run a more climate friendly, ecological and economical production.
