Stock footage sound bite shortcuts?
on Sep 24, 2018 at 12:16:26 pm

Hi, everyone - here's what I'm trying to do. I have a paragraph of text that I want to montage, word by word, using film clips. I'm sure I don't have the rights to use anything that's not in the public domain. Does anyone know of any shortcuts or databases to help me find something this specific? It seems to me that if I had transcripts of stuff where I could locate words of dialogue really easily, before securing the footage, that would be a huge help, but this might be too arcane of a task to even dive into. The clips can be from film or TV, color or black&white. My going ahead with this project is entirely determined by how possible it is to do it. Thank you all very much!

You can do detailed searches on any stock footage website as well as Youtube so this should be relatively easy to determine whether you can put visuals to the text.

Thank you! Perhaps I wasn't clear enough - I'm looking for clips of individual words from film clips that, edited together, will sound like full sentences. That's the challenge of the search.

I'm very grateful for the reply and suggestion.

Do you mean that you want to use single words from multiple sources to make up a different sentence? Like...

"Here" from Jack Nicholson
"are" by James Franco
"the" by Jerry Seinfeld
"best" by Tom Cruise
"carrots" by Sigourney Weaver
"money" by Leonardo DiCaprio
"can" by James Caan
"buy" by Uma Thurmond.

Or...like those videos of news people like Brian Williams, where you take single words from multiple broadcasts to have him saying the lyrics to a popular song?

Yes, the multiple speakers is the effect I'm trying to do. (The extra pun of "Caan" saying "can" would be a private joke...)

For that you need to either find the words manually (listen for them) or load the clip into software like PHRASE FIND and do a search for the word you are looking for.

If it was me, I'd start with a website like this: https://www.imsdb.com

grab a bunch of scripts and then start doing word searches.
