The Reelin’ In The Years archive houses over 30,000 hours of music footage spanning 100 years, which runs the gamut from full-length concerts to in-studio live and lip-sync performances as well as interviews and b-roll footage with the performers. In addition to our massive music footage archive, we control the rights to 10,000 hours of in-depth interviews with the 20th-century’s icons of Film and Television, Politics, Comedy, Literature, Art, Science, Fashion and Sports. The interviews are from legendary talk shows around the world, including those hosted by Sir David Frost, Merv Griffin, Rona Barrett, Brian Linehan and many others, all of which is available for licensing to all forms of media. We don’t charge for screeners or research because we want you to look at all of our relevant footage for your project!
Our dedication to finding, preserving and cataloging archival footage have made Reelin’ In The Years Productions a go-to source for licensing footage of musical artists, entertainers and history makers as the following testimonials from some Oscar & Grammy winning producers will attest to….
"Reelin’ In The Years Productions has the definitive catalog for many of the greatest acts in popular music history. That has made them the go-to supplier for material on many of the major documentaries we have worked on at White Horse Pictures Documentaries. What so attracts me is that the company, and its principals, are always there to help with suggestions and ideas to fill out clips and material we are looking for to make our documentaries wonderful. They do a great job for their rights holders, but equally, they bring their taste, energy, and user-friendly attitude to helping us licensees!"
—NIGEL SINCLAIR award winning producer on such films as The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, Martin Scorsese’s George Harrison: Living In The Material World, No Direction Home: Bob Dylan, Foo Fighters: Back And Forth and most recently, The Bee Gees How Can You Mend A Broken Heart for which Reelin’ In The Years President, David Peck was one of the Executive Producers.
“Digging through archival footage from Reelin’ In The Years Productions always inspires a WOW moment. When it comes to music documentaries, RITY has always been instrumental, but now that the company has such a wealth of material outside the scope of music footage, they’re indispensable to any archival project.”
—MORGAN NEVILLE – OSCAR-winning director of Twenty Feet From Stardom
Whether you’re looking for music footage from The Beatles to Beyonce, entertainment from Bette Davis to Jerry Seinfeld or history makers from Martin Luther King to Joe Biden, Reelin’ In The Years Productions has the perfect footage for your project.
