    Hi there! Not sure if this is the right subforum... We are currently in our post production fase for our short documentary on depression. This documentary exist out of voice over monologues of depressed people and found footage imagery.

    We are looking for photo's/portrets that make a connotation to depression. Or have a metaphorical layer to depressed people. For example Edward Honaker's photoserie on depression.

    We would like to use this images in our film so if you do submit, take notion that this film will be screened at various events, and put online and spread on different social media.

    For inquiries mail to leoniek95@hotmail.com

    Thank you very much!

    Leonie

    What are you looking for in terms of usage rights, and what are you willing to pay?

    My stuff can be viewed on my 500px page (link below), can be bought there too.

    I'd give ONE image for free, since.. was depressed (+anxiety) for 13 years, but I sure hope you're not fishing for
    free stuff here. o_O

    Actually I hoped to find some stuff for free here. I've gotten lots of video footage from filmmakers who wanted to participate in the documentary, so I hoped photographers would be as generous too.

    Okay... so EVERYONE involved in the project is dontating EVERYTHING? There are no fees, salaries or honourariums being paid to anyone? Forgive my apparent skepticism, but we see a lot of requests like this where people assume that photographers will happily donate their work to a project where others are being paid, simply for the sake of "exposure". I've tried, but my gas station refuses to take my exposure credits in exchange for gasoline. Now... if this is a truly non-profit, no-pay (as in no one is paid anything, and any funds raised are dontated to an appropriate cause) that puts it in a different light. If that is the case, I would recommend leading with that, so that people understand the situation a little more clearly.

    You also need to elaborate on what you want as far as usage so that the images can be properly licensed, regardless of whether or not payment is given.

    Your film is in post-production, yet you are still looking for graphic material.

    If I had an assignment to produce images that portrayed depression, I would consider it pretty much a blank page and go out to make the photographs. I probably would not already have such photographs.

    Also, the issue of not being paid is concerning because I have no idea of where the film plays, to whom, and how many times.

    Provide more info. on who's doing this, if it's a nonprofit group, etc. if you're asking people to donate or contribute to your efforts.

    Basically if you're producing a film I think the expectation is that the filmmakers would be taking the photos themselves or contracting with some photographers.

    And it would also be useful to know in what country this film is being produced. If I'm not mistaken, your English is not native.
