James Forsher Productions was formed in the mid 1970’s as a film and video production company. During the early 1980's, James Forsher Productions produced a series of documentary specials for national cable and home video release (Ticket to Hollywood, Hollywood Uncensored and Hollywood Ghost Stories that sold to such companies as Movie Channel, Cinemax, Warner Home Video, IVE Home Video etc.). During this time, Forsher Productions developed an in-house library of stock footage, used in the documentaries. Shows like Entertainment Tonight began using the collection on a regular basis. In 1986, the company expanded by hiring a full time film archivist, and the library has functioned as an autonomous company ever since.
