Help!!!

I desperately need to aquire some professional quality stock video footage for a project at work can anyone point me in the right direction? Physical Address or website, anyone?

Preferably available on CD Rom or similar in at least MPG1 format. Ideally I'm looking for some fairly recent and colourful footage of any of the following... Travel, Film Trailer, Promos, etc.

Willing to pay the going rate (obviously) however any 'freebies' would also 'obviously' be appreciated (and fully credited).

This 'desperate' request is due to having to demo a prototype to one of the largest US media networks week.

Here's hoping someone can help... post replies here in the first instance.

Thanks paulj,

I downloaded 4 clips in MPEG1 format around 100Mb which are just about perfect for what I had in mind.

Did you get them free, or pay for them?

They're REAL expensive!!!

Know of any free ones? :)

Thanks for your help,

ChrisBitz, I got them free in MPG1 better quality has to be paid for This is for a prototype so the cheaper the better and the quality is fine from CD in this format.

Ned - Thanks for the response and offer, however I have four now which will do fine. If I am in need in the future, I'll be in touch. Question though... are you selling these or was it an offer of a freebie (just so I know for future). I would have got in touch either way, but have what I need for Wednesday next week, anyway would have had to have them converted and I don't think realistically I have got enough time before then.

Thanks all,
