Henri Ehrlich is a producer and researcher with extensive experience finding, acquiring rights to, and using image and sound archives. He has worked on a wide range of projects, from Broadway shows to TV documentaries, feature films, museum exhibits and advertising campaigns, and has developed a far-reaching international network of contacts and sources. He founded research companies and footage agencies in the US and Australia and started the film division of The Image Bank, the eventual core film collection of Getty Images.

Ehrlich has always combined research and clearance of existing footage and other audiovisual materials with an interest in their commercial and creative exploitation. This has led him to develop a wide and ecclectic range of projects, from the creation of branding content for a landmark building's public screen in Sydney to video collages for impressionist David Frye, CBS kid series "Marlo and the Magic Movie Machine", the Colombian Gold and Pompei exhibits of the American Museum of Natural History and Thomson's 100-screen exhibit at the IFA salon in Berlin, among others. Ehrlich continues to espouse the use of existing footage as the equivalent of paints and promotes the concept of video design via his and websites.
