No-budget Berlin documentary needs footage. Can you help?
I'm currently making a no-budget documentary about life in East Germany called 'My DDR T-Shirt'
I've got about 14 hours of video and some great interviews to piece together but I'm also looking for other sources. Things like archive news footage or photographs of Berlin before the wall came down, Trabants driving through East Berlin, checkpoints, border guards or the night the Wall came down.
Does anybody know of any royalty free archives?
I'm also interested in amateur film/home movies and photography from East Germany.
Do you have any old holiday snaps? Or any old camcorder footage of East Germany?
It doesn't have to be spectacular or dramatic, just anything that's typically DDR/GDR.
I'm totally self-funded so can't afford big licence fees. But if I use anything of yours, I will credit you in the final film and on my website.
