It would be great to have for students if so. My students are tired of the coffee shop material and I would like them to edit documentary footage.

Any ideas for other good sources of dailies and footage?

There's a demo project you can download, but is that the coffee shop footage you're referring to?

You can also look at sources like the Prelinger Archive or public domain archives on YouTube.

Also, post production is not an afterthought!

I suspect that's the coffee shop media that's currently being used.

Yeah, the students have used the coffee shop women shots to death. I would love to have the surfing material so they could follow along with the Quick Start tutorial and also do their own versions. It is a simple doc project which would be good too along with the narrative coffee shop scenes with the two women.

When I learned editing, we did the famous "Gunsmoke" exercise. We were given rolls of 16mm picture from a very old Gunsmoke episode, synced that to 16mm mag track for the sound and then cut them together on 16mm flat bed edit tables. My partner and I had the best punch in the class. We also had to record our own sound effects & find music.

Someone has posted the American Cinema Editors instructional film on YouTube. Note that the presenter is sitting in front of a Moviola upright!

+1 for more demo footage for educational purposes and demos.


Isn't there anybody out there who can provide a set of (contemporary) dailies for some scenes without claiming copyright fees for educational purposes.

I think the whole world learnt editing on that "Gunsmoke" fight scene! That's the one with Anthony Quinn of "Zorba the Greek" fame in an early role, isn't it?

Lightworks used to include in its early releases a scene from an English David Jason crime series the name of which escapes me at the moment. I used to use that footage at trade shows. There was also the footage for a German coffee commercial. I don't know what happened to them but if you could track them down they would be useful too.

Depending on the contracts, that can be quite problematic. That's why I use the collection of stills and scenic footage that I do when explaining Lightworks issues. If you could guarantee that it could never be used in the public domain you might get somewhere but with Youtube the way that it is...

Not Anthony Quinn, but Jack Klugman (Oscar in the Odd Couple TV show that I grew up with).

Yes, you're right. It was Jack Klugman - I've just checked. Ah, the memory isn't what it once was...

I gather ACE distributed the mentioned fight scene from Gunsmoke on DVD in the past. It's a bit hidden on their site, but they still distribute a download version for 50 USD, here:

Long live history!

While searching for some multicam footage for free, I found Cinestudy.org. They offer video material for free. I've downloaded the multicam material and it looks quite good for educational purposes and demos. There's other material as well, maybe worth a look?

Of course, they appreciate (and deserve) donations and don't forget to credit them when going public.
