National Geographic Digital Motion represents hundreds of programs varying in length that may be licensed in their entirety. These programs typically range from two to five minutes (short-form programming) and 30 – 60 minutes in length (full-length or long format programming). Programs are licensed on a per-minute or per-program basis depending on volume. We have hundreds for you to select the right fit for your subject.
These fully produced programs may be used to:

Whether you are looking to enhance your print-based product or create new media-based products or components, licensing fully produced programs allows you to have National Geographic quality while saving money and valuable editorial time when compared to original production.
Video Stock Footage
National Geographic Digital Motion has a century's worth of the world's most captivating digital film archive from around the globe, with thousands of hours of clips added each year. The digital archive at www.ngdigitalmotion.com is filled with amazing footage from around the world, captured by talented and adventurous filmmakers who are willing to endure earth’s harshest extremes for never-before-seen images. Whether its animal behavior, climate change, technology or people and places around the world, we have the footage to bring your educational project to life.
Stock footage (or “raw footage”) is priced on a per-second basis and refers to the licensing of the moving images only. Since stock footage is licensed without sound, educational companies may use it to create their own customized media products, including videos, CDs, DVDs, web-based products, and other e-learning products. In some cases, natural sound may be available. Our vast digital film archive is available online at www.ngdigitalmotion.com.
