Catch&Release solves a specific problem that touches almost every creative, producer and content creator in the production industry today: we make it easy to discover the best content from the open web, and make it available for licensing to agencies and brands worldwide.
I founded Catch&Release Inc after a decade working with advertising agencies and brands, and listening to our customers agonize over how painful it is to find relevant, exciting content that's ready to license on increasingly quick-turnaround commercial projects. Traditional stock is often too "stocky" and UGC is often overwhelming in volume with ambiguity around rights and clearances. Catch&Release makes it easy for creatives to sift the gold from the dirt to find the best content out there, with a verified process of clearance and licensing that gives Producers and Business Affairs teams peace of mind with an elegant end-to-end experience.
Over the years I have grown the company to include an amazing team of curators, engineers, licensing pro's, filmmakers, creatives, producers, and project managers. We relieve headaches for the best agencies and buyers around, including Apple, Twitter, Droga5, Anomaly, Goodby, Silverstein&Partners, Weiden+Kennedy, and more.
