Framepool's Footage Highlights

How real men shoot animals

Fascinating footage of wild animals from up close. We proudly present our "hunter" to you, one whose quarry extends beyond big game.

From lions to iguanas, Benjamin Sadd is always stalking wild animals somewhere in the world. Shying away from neither hardship nor risk, he steals through the steppe, dives in the ocean, flies over forests and crawls through the jungle to pick up the trail of all kinds of wild animals in their natural environments.

Ben’s trophies don’t end their days mounted to living room walls with glassy-eyed stares. We preserve them for you as superb 4K nature videos that can be licensed online directly in the Framepool shop. Following the maxim “take a picture, not a trophy,” the dedicated scientist deploys his cameras as weapons in the ongoing struggle to protect nature and conserve threatened species.

At the moment, Ben is filming in Siberia – and we are eagerly waiting for his spectacular new material. A true sharpshooter who misses nothing. Don’t miss him!

Good to know – indemnity against liability


Identifying and tracing rights holders sometimes proves impossible. This is typically because the identity of persons portrayed is unknown, or because a person cannot be contacted even after numerous attempts. In some cases, the time and place of a person’s death are unknown, so the relevant post-mortem publicity rights cannot be applied.

Does that mean that images or footage cannot be used? Not necessarily: we have the expertise and the experience to gauge the degree of risk involved reliably. If it is high, you still don’t need to risk your own neck when using protected works: we can offer you an indemnification agreement which ensures any claims for damages will be against Framepool and not against you. In this case, you bear no risk whatsoever.

The indemnification fee depends on the degree of risk involved and is calculated on a per-project basis, taking many relevant factors into account. They include the type and duration of use, geographical dissemination (national, continental, global), whether persons are contemporary or historical figures, and their significance for the general public and within the images. The fee applies to all third-party rights within a given project that cannot be cleared.

Note: We clear all rights. And when rights clearance is impossible, we still have solutions.
