Workprint Films

Stock libraries are a necessary evil in the world of communication. They are the perfect way to get reasonably priced images and video, but sometimes they leave a lot to be desired. We’ve all seen those cheesy shots of businessmen in offices, celebrating behind computers and the people walking on beaches. But what if these images can mean more?

We love this initiative by Catch and Release and The License Lab, which takes stock footage from a number of different sources and stitches it together to form a visual narrative.

What a great way to take something that is designed to be as blank a canvas as possible and turn it into something meaningful.

We’ve shared one of their films below, but you can check out even more on their site.
