Why Hire a Researcher
VRSC/ARAC is an organization of professional visual researchers and archive producers who work in a range of fields from documentaries to television dramas and features. Their services are also used regularly by book and magazine publishers, advertising agencies, museum curators, web site designers and many others who need an experienced person to source just the right footage and still imagery for their project and obtain permissions for the use. Apart from research skills and an extensive network of contacts, our members can also advise on copyright issues and negotiate license agreements to ensure necessary protections are in place for their clients. The VRSC has negotiated preferred rates with many footage and image sources which are available exclusively to our members and can significantly lower their client’s overall licensing costs.
