Fascinating footage of wild animals from up close. We proudly present our “hunter” to you, one whose quarry extends beyond big game.
From lions to iguanas, Benjamin Sadd is always stalking wild animals somewhere in the world. Shying away from neither hardship nor risk, he steals through the steppe, dives in the ocean, flies over forests and crawls through the jungle to pick up the trail of all kinds of wild animals in their natural environments.
Ben’s trophies don’t end their days mounted to living room walls with glassy-eyed stares. We preserve them for you as superb 4K nature videos that can be licensed online directly in the Framepool shop. Following the maxim “take a picture, not a trophy”, the dedicated scientist deploys his cameras as weapons in the ongoing struggle to protect nature and conserve threatened species.
At the moment, Ben is filming in Siberia – and we are eagerly waiting for his spectacular new material. A true sharpshooter who misses nothing. Don’t miss him!
Footage by Benjamin Sadd, exclusive to Framepool
The Framepool family is growing: Seven Golden Retriever puppies on their way to adulthood now enrich our footage archive. Here you can witness the progress of the little rascals – from their birth right up to the attack on the camera of puppy-mom Sandra Kulbach, our cinematographic “family expert”. We are excited about more upcoming footage material featuring vicious attacks against hostile footwear and heroic victories over torn up sofa cushions.
More on animal babies all over the world
From clumsy puppy paws to weird looking sea snails, from panoramic aerials to creative close-ups, from busy cities to spectacular sceneries and current affairs to historical treasures – our stock footage archive is growing on a daily basis, always featuring new footage submissions from our talented cinematographers.
High speed footage captures those amazing moments which are invisible to the naked eye. Those hard to capture images add a special touch of creativity to your project. Explosions, bursting watermelons, flying bullets, or butterflies pollinating flowers all look amazing when filmed at high speed.
Check out our footage online library for our “high speed starshots” collection, too.

We don’t spare efforts or petabytes to offer you quality without compromise. So you can count on the best aesthetic base for your production in the edit.
Why bother having the best footage or the greatest cinematographers, if the valuable material gets treated badly? At Framepool we guarantee that any original quality is preserved and the material will be passed onto you the way it was supplied:
10 bit stays as 10 bit – 12 bit is maintained as 12 bit
We always store incoming footage material in it’s original resolution, with no haggling for bits or bytes! Framepool is the only stock footage provider who deals with chroma subsampling in 4:4:4, if the original footage material has been shot in raw or 4:4:4. The entire original colour information of a clip is always preserved within the workflow of our footage archive and can be delivered as such through our master play-out process.
So if a clip has been filmed in top quality on Red or Alexa, you can be sure we’ll provide it to you in the same stunning quality 1:1. And to make sure that our clients will have their specific production needs met, we always archive the corresponding raw files to our colour corrected ProRes footage masters.
There are many free options to choose from within our master playout process, for instance:
• a variety of frame rates,
• delivery in original resolution,
• additional choices for common codecs as needed in post, for example Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD.
We are also happy to deliver you the raw material, or we can arrange for some internal post work like de-graining and dirt removal when it comes to scanned film material.
We guarantee you more flexibility for color grading and compositing! The result is – post production your way!
TALENT FEES CAN RAIN ON YOUR PARADE
Predicting licensing fees can feel like a game of cat and mouse: the other side usually wins. To boost your chances of cracking this conundrum, talk to us before mentioning figures!
One recent example from our Rights Clearance activities involved two scenes from famous cartoons that were intended to play a central role in a commercial. The ad agency reckoned the total fees for both shots would barely run into five figures, but the actual fees turned out to be ten times that – for each clip! With discrepancies on that scale, brokering agreement is almost impossible even when rights holders are willing to offer very generous “quantity rebates” and customers are very understanding. So the project is dead in the water.
We offer a free service to spare you from such embarrassing late discoveries: describe your project to us, ideally using a mood film, and we will tell you whether it is feasible and what conditions and fees you will probably need to reckon with.
- Rights clearance issues and licensing fees for third-party rights can arise even in connection with royalty free footage: rights which may need clarification can include not only personality rights, but also audio rights, brand names and brands visible in images, logos of third-party companies (common in sports footage!), event rights, third-party copyrights etc.
- License fees for copyrighted external material (not offered via an agency) and other third-party rights are typically determined on the basis of the total budget of a campaign and on its expected reach (media plan).
- Talent fees are often determined on the basis of the most expensive person in the clip (“MFN” – Most Favoured Nation Clause).
- Fees vary greatly depending on the rights holder and the media plan. Attempting to predict them in advance can be a game of roulette.
We offer you
- our experience for an estimate (free),
- our expertise for rights clearance (450 euros per right), and
- our finesse in negotiations (on a commission basis).
Don’t rely on your 50/50 lifeline when you need to secure rights and large amounts of money are at stake. Use Framepool as your “phone a friend” lifeline instead!
