Videos for sale and trade

This section is coming soon! We have over 300 tapes available. We prefer trades if at all possible, else videos are approx 10-15% above our costs. We are in the process of setting up a trading system, and licensing arrangement, where you may contribute footage to the archive, and grant performance rights to a VJ half the world away in exchange for use of other artist's footage by you in the archive. Also a commission based licensing arrangement, where your footage is licensed to club owners around the world. Why not have a win-win arrangement? - Details to follow soon. In the mean time, we would encourage you to contact us at: footage@audiovisualizers.com if you are interested in contributing material to the archive. We will reply with full details. Until we publish the specifics, trades are on a 1 to 1 ratio, for personal use only. Thanks for your interest!
