These are some of the questions we'll likely ask you in order to provide the best price possible:

  • What HD Clips or Still Photos are you interested in? In particular, we'll be determining whether the HD Clip or Still Photo is from our Amtrak Train Photo Collection, Amtrak Train Collection or from our Amtrak American Scenic Collection?
  • What is the nature and format of the production you'll be creating - for example: a commercial advertisement, corporate presentation, feature film, scripted television program, documentary program, web series, student film, public service announcement, etc.?
  • What media will the project will be distributed in? For example: all media, broadcast television, broadcast and cable, non-broadcast presentations, film festivals, Internet?
  • What is the term/duration of the license you'll need - that is, for how long will the project be screened, broadcast, or distributed?
  • What territory or geographic area will the project be distributed in - for example: worldwide, one continent, one country, local region?
  • What media and format will you want for final distribution? For example: Standard-Definition or High-Definition tape or file, interpositive or internegative film element?
  • Please note: Not all of our HD Clips are available on film; Doubletime Productions’ Executive Producer will review all requests and determined what clips are available before for final commitment. There will be extra research and production charges for any approved film duplication request.
