WE ARE STRONGER WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER

The people of south-east Texas have gone through a catastrophic event together and are left in shock in the wake of hurricane Harvey. Countless families have lost absolutely everything they had, and are now tasked to rebuild from scratch. Thankfully, Texans really know how to love their neighbors, and we've already witnessed an amazing response from people from all walks of life who are determined to not let anyone have to go through that process alone. Overwhelming crowds of people are reaching out to donate or volunteer in whatever capacity is needed or available all around the city. We're all trying to find ways to truly make a difference, and for us, we fully understand the powerful role that storytelling plays in bringing awareness to a need.

WITH THAT IN MIND, WE PARTNERED WITH OUR FRIEND ANDERSON FROM VIDEO BY ROBOT AND HAVE COLLECTIVELY REACHED OUT TO ALL LOCAL FILMMAKERS, PHOTOGRAPHERS AND CONTENT CREATORS, TO ESTABLISH A COMMUNITY-SHARED STOCK LIBRARY FOR FOOTAGE OR IMAGES PERTAINING TO THE DEVASTATION, AFTERMATH AND RECOVERY OF HURRICANE HARVEY.

THE RESPONSE HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE

*COMMERCIAL & BROADCAST LICENSING INQUIRES: Please reach out to hello@filmlab.com and we'll connect you with the original author of the content you're requesting.

HERE'S THE LOWDOWN

Below is a link to upload your media. Please add your name to files, and we'll organize content based on author. We encourage you to also add a text file with your contact info, for credits and potential licensing requests that may come through. There's no stipulation on quality or format of content. We all know that sometimes smart phone video can convey a raw moment as well as anything can. With the overwhelming response though, we ask that you be considerate of files sizes. You can help by converting large prores or RAW files to .mp4, or by sorting your clips to the best takes.

The concept is to collectively take advantage of the fact that we have amazing filmmakers, photographers and content makers stationed all over the city. Each individual brings their own unique creative and geographical perspective to the complete story of what has transpired here in Houston with this event. Each of us also likely has had the urge to document what is happening, and this shared content library will help us leverage those videos and images into a powerful tool for the entire city.

 

This shared library is to be utilized communally for local non-profit and humanitarian story content only. As long as you're doing non-commercial work, and it's focus is to tell a story that will benefit the city, then you're free you use any elements that complete your story. By uploading your content, you're also permitting other filmmakers and storytellers to utilize your content for the same purposes. Consider every file you add an investment into the city's recovery. This is all about coming together to help Houston rebuild, and we know that there will be a big need for quality imagery to tell stories for foundations and non-profits who are trying to make a bigger impact.

To gain access to the shared folder of content, please complete the form below and we will send you a link.

WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER, AND WE HAVE SO MUCH LOVE FOR YOU, HOUSTON!
