Replicable Ideas Relationship with regional broadcasters: access services in return for money up front and service agreement; relationship with local broadcaster based on providing access to them from your holdings of their material, giving you rights to use the footage in your public and educational work, and potentially sharing any commercial income. Team up with local venues where any movies are ever shown, not only the cinemas but libraries and community halls; don't expect to make money but you will get offers of more footage & good profile-raising.
