Explore Catch&Release


Stock libraries are finite. Your ideas aren't.

Catch&Release enables creative teams to break free from the limits of a stock library or complexities of a live-action shoot. Our mission is to open up rivers of content - beyond the typical static library - so no matter where you find the shot, you can actually use it in the final edit.


License content
with confidence.

When you use Catch&Release to curate content from the open web, a unique Licensability Assessment estimates the likelihood you can use what you find. You can track clearances in real-time, with up-to-the-minute updates. Indemnification is always included.

how it works


While creative opportunities abound, the commercial production landscape has changed.

Our cloud-based collaborative platform keeps your team connected so projects stay on track, even while working at a distance.

With Catch&Release, we were able to source content that matched a hyper-specific criteria, license it, and then quickly expand our right to the most high-exposure platform there is: a Super Bowl Pre Game.

Deanna Kotch

Senior Director of Brand Marketing

We are constantly in prototyping mode, so we use Catch&Release to help find content to help us imagine what the concept will look like on the screen.

Aaron Duffy

Creative Lead and Founder

We consider Catch&Release critical to our creative process. They are a conduit for us getting the footage and content to tell our clients' stories.

Executive Producer

The magic of Catch&Release is that they’ve systematized the finding and licensing of found footage. Your strike rate on getting a licensable asset is much higher than doing it yourself.
