TopFoto Debuts its Stills Collection at footageMarketplace

Major stills library TopFoto is attending footageMarketplace for the first time because a substantial part of their business is licensing archive stills to film and TV production researchers.

Their area of leading expertise and content is licencing stills, they are a preferred supplier to the BBC for WW1 material for example, and supply independent production companies with everything from pictures of UFOs to notorious criminal cases. With collections painstakingly built up over nearly 90 years and covering every subject and era, they are hard to beat for choice, speed and service. Here’s just a few major recent/current projects where they supplied key images: House of Windsor, Happy Valley Murders, Restoration Man, Disappearing Britain, 1916, Who Do You Think You Are?, Hillsborough, and the wonderful movie, A United Kingdom.

Flora Nedelcu, TopFoto Managing Partner, says, "My main objective on the day is to build on TopFoto’s success at fotofringe London, the annual event which I created seven years ago. Despite, or rather because of, the rapid development of technologies, personal contact between media researchers and suppliers is an essential support for the right content, on time, on budget and with the right clearances. This all fits with our 2017 plans for TopFoto which includes a strong presence at selected industry events, of which footageMarketplace, fotofringe are the most important ones."

TopFoto is a huge asset to the TV and Film industry, with a great depth and range of material and the welcome benefit of a full in-house search service at no extra charge. TopFoto has six million digitised images available for immediate download, and that they have been collecting huge old news archives and all sorts of strange and wonderful collections since Flora’s father Alan Smith took over the original 1927 business from John Topham in 1975. Everything in the archive is searchable by their in-house team, and they have a production department that scans and uploads relevant images on demand. Flora continues, “There’s no hanging about and having to wait for our customers. TV and film archive researchers are often in a tearing hurry, and often need something rare - and we lead the field in both those areas. My personal favourite search of all time is ’hello, do you have anything at all on making traditional rabbit pie?’ Our researcher went to the archive, into the "tins" of 10 x 8’s taken for magazines in the 40s-70s, and there she found….. a perfect series of beautiful photographs covering every stage, from preparing the rabbit to serving up the pie!"

Over 30 stills and footage libraries, technology companies and industry organisations are exhibiting at the event, which is the UK’s premier expo for the footage media sector.
Flora says, “I’m looking forward to our first footageMarketplace, and the seminars sound fascinating. VR? AI? Bring it on, life is visual.” See them on Table 27 at the home of BAFTA 195 Piccadilly on May 24th.

Registration is now open: Click here to ensure your badge is waiting for you on the day. It is free for industry professionals. A complimentary buffet lunch will be served, and refreshments are available during the day. This is the place to come to network, do deals, and attend seminars by leading industry figures.

24th May 2017 – 9.30 - 16.30
195 Piccadilly (home of BAFTA) London W1J 9LN.
