Global ImageWorks was recognized by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the Top 40 Independent Film-Friendly Businesses of 2007 as the mag honored the spirit of 40 years of independent moviemaking.
Cited for its personalized service and unique footage, Company President Jessica Berman-Bogdan stated , “We are thrilled to be so honored for our support of the independent filmmaking community. We understand the creative and financial demands put on productions from both sides of the fence, representing several filmmakers’ footage for licensing as well as providing research and clearance services for new productions. It is our goal to keep the focus on deeper content and not merely stock shots – a challenge for all archives as digital delivery and mobile platforms takes center stage.”
2007 featured Global ImageWorks footage in several of the year’s high profile films including “Taxi To the Darkside”, “No End in Sight”, “Chicago 10”, “Ghosts of Abu Ghraib”, “The Kingdom”, “The Axe in the Attic”, “Everything’s Cool”, “Sicko”, “9/11’s Toxic Dust” and “Mr. Untouchable” among others. The Sundance Film Festival in January 2008 will premiere three outstanding films for which Global ImageWorks provided footage and/or research services :“CSNY: Déjà Vu”, “Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson” and “Fields of Fuel”.
