“Show me the ________”
Yes, you can fill in the blank. That’s because Hollywood has spent billions of dollars inserting catch phrases, iconic visuals and memorable scenes into our brains.
So, tap into the power of Hollywood’s bucks and high production values. Insert movie clips into your presentations to REALLY make a point and “up” the engagement of your speeches or training classes.
Can I legally use movie clips?
Yes and no. Yes, you can legally feature movie clip. No, you can’t just download a clip and use it legally. But fortunately for presenters everywhere, there’s the Motional Picture Licensing Corporation. http://www.mplc.org.
Cheap and legal – what’s not to like?
For an extremely modest fee, you can use as many movie clips as you would like for a specified number of presentations per year. There are no reporting requirements. It couldn’t be easier.
