History of Stock Footage, Inc.
Before creating Stock Footage, Inc. John worked as a Producer in various video production studios. In 1996 John Farr started Creative Media Group, Inc. (CMG). His video production studio quickly grew into a successful production house that serviced the needs of many large organizations. These include: Novell, Adobe, Microsoft, Sony Pictures, as well as broadcasting networks like BBC, PBS, CTVC, NBC, Disney, and FOX.
For a decade CMG created digital assets for stock footage distribution and provided video to Getty, Corbis, BBC, Discovery, A&E, Sony, and directly to film-makers, ad-agencies, non-profit organizations, and production companies.
Eventually, John created Stock Footage, Inc. to manage and distribute downloadable stock footage.
John built a team of talented cinematographers, colorists, and vfx artists to shoot stock footage in some of the most incredible places around the world. He has shot extensively in Israel, Kenya, Nepal (Mount Everest), Venice, Rome, Dubai, London, Vancouver, New York, Alaska, Detroit, Dallas, Montana, California, Nevada, and Utah and has shot stock footage in 90 national parks. In 2011 he spent several weeks with the US military special forces in which they obtained special permission to shoot high-speed footage of c4 explosions, machine guns, operating shots from within a Chinook, a black-hawk helicopter, and several other military vehicles. On his trip to Israel they received rare permission to shoot alone inside the heart of the Holy Sepulchre, The Aedicule, one of the most sacred places on earth to both Christians. This unique library of high quality stock footage will bring particular interest to those working on documentaries or feature films.
