Desktop Documentaries Interview with Beachfront B-Roll Founder Jeffrey Beach:

Please share your filmmaking background and why you started beachfrontbroll.com.

I work in Broadcast Television and have worked in Feature and Commercial film. I started my site because I had gotten a lateral "promotion" at my station and was doing a lot more management, administrative and contract work than production. I was somewhat saddened by that, but still love what I do. I wanted to keep shooting and thought doing this as a hobby/side project would be a great way to keep up.

Why are you offering your clips for free to the public?

Since I was shooting anyway, I thought it might be nice to give back to an industry that has been so good to me. I love the community it has and I love seeing the work that people are able to make and the stories they are able to tell with the somewhat random footage I provide.

Are all your free clips hosted on archive.org?

Yes. Early on it was recommended as a great place to host my footage (since I was offering it for free anyway). Using them has been a WONDERFUL experience and I have had zero hosting problems. If there has been a missing clip it was due to human error on my part. It has been a very reliable service. And once again ... free.

Since I don't really make much money off of the site (besides some random donations which are put towards upgrades) Having the file hosting by Archive.org and web hosting by Blogger has been essential. My frontend cost for supplying the clips has been very low. I can then concentrate my efforts on things like gas, internet and paying off financed equipment upgrades (i'm impatient!).
