Periscope Film LLC

Periscope Film LLC offers thousands of hours of historic media, all backed by film elements, chronicling many of the key moments in the 20th Century. We've licensed footage to clients all over the world including the BBC, History Channel, National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, Smithsonian and more. Our rates are competitive and affordable, because we work with clients to meet their needs.

Producers love us because we provide free research. Another reason that clients love to work with us, is that —unlike many of the other vendors out there — we're absolutely committed to delivering high quality material, and we've got the ability to make it happen. There are unscrupulous vendors out there, who pass off National Archives material as their own, and who don't actually own broadcast quality masters. We're different. We can and do deliver the highest quality material because we own an extensive library of original 16mm and 35mm film prints, and take the time to properly telecine these high quality originals for optimum results.

All footage from the Periscope Film LLC archive is available for licensing and because of the film backing, almost all of it is available in true 24p high definition HD and 2k / 4k formats.
