Here at the USC Hugh M. Hefner Moving Image Archive we have thousands of hours of stock footage available for licensing. This comes not only from the over 80 years worth of student films, educational films, but also from many different collections shot specifically to be used as stock footage or for documentaries that were never produced. Below you will find a growing collection of downloadable clips you can test out to see if the footage is right for your project. If you don’t see what you are looking for please feel free to contact us at and we will be happy to discuss rates and deliverables with you.
