Caught On Tape TV
Caught On Tape TV is a service that connects producers with owners of copyrighted material, allowing videographers worldwide the opportunity to cash-in for being at the right place and the right time. On one-side the service provides producers with a source from which to license copyrighted material directly through the owner, while at the same time, provide videographers with a simple-way, to process and appraise, new content.
The vision for Caught On Tape TV, is to become a world leading source for licensed, unscripted video content. Essentially, this means a direct pipeline of real world video content flowing from independent videographers to producers and directors, who are willing to pay for the use of such content.
Join the team
The Caught On Tape TV network is designed to be THE premier platform to connect freelance videographers to professionals looking for the invaluable footage that is captured every day. As a direct source to the film and TV industries, submissions will be screened for quality and content, as to ensure only the best imagery is presented to the producers, editors, and directors needing this valuable intellectual property.
Time is everything
“The right company, at the right time….” This innovative platform is a concept born of events that occurred over 20 years ago. Now, two decades later, virtually everyone has the ability to record video, and that result is definitely worth something. Our platform brings your work front and center to those individuals and media outlets who are willing to pay for that incredible footage.
Since almost everyone has a recording device and with the massive surge to record anything that we can, we knew that this was the right time to develop and showcase our concepts.
They are not YouTube
True, Caught On Tape TV is a database showcasing video media. However, our content is not intended as entertainment for the general public. Its purpose is to provide professionals who use video everyday as part of their production process with a unique and singular location to appropriate the specific material they are searching for. The purchased and licensed rights to use these clips provides a direct channel between those posting the content and those who desire the content. One of the biggest complaints we get from producers is their inability to locate video owners, especially on websites with tens of millions of duplicate videos and since they are on time constraints, they usually give up.
Since our business concept, invention or product in this Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign is not a tangible item or product in the sense that a regular campaign has, we instead created a way to reward our Kickstarter pledge’s with limited edition collectible COT.TV products and lifetime founder credits and roles.
Reward PHOTOS are available at the bottom of this page. We think that our limited edition rewards will make great gifts for any videographer or entrepreneur. We made efforts to ensure not to duplicate your items when pledging for larger kits, so please upgrade with confidence and get the complete Limited Edition COT.TV Kickstarter line. Take time to review the KITS and see which one best suits your needs. We would love for you to buy multiple kits and we would be sure to have your items delivered in time for the Christmas holiday. You can give as gifts for that movie recording enthusiast or that budding young news reporter. We want Caught On Tape TV to help start making memories for some while helping others build a foundation for recording great media.

Why funding is necessary
Caught On Tape TV is currently self-sufficient in its ability as a small company, content creator and/or a media provider. Also, we partnered with producers who have libraries of video material waiting to dip into the COT.TV media-sphere. Finally, we have legal professionals who will be working to protect your interests with regards to your intellectual property, so here’s why we need the money?
We need to acquire funds to be able to provide the Licensing and IP services to videographers looking to secure their video content. Some of the things that we need funding for are as follows:
Servers / Hardware / Content Delivery Networks Programming / Web Design / Mobile App Design Security / Customer Service / Tech Support
Once we’re able to launch the website, Kickstarter Pledgers with be the first to be notified to create their profiles.
Every little bit counts so please send us your pledge. Again, we are grateful that you have taken the time to read our campaign and for this opportunity to make a difference in how videos are licensed by the TV industry..
Risks and challenges
Over the years, negotiating with various entities interested in partnering on this venture has brought us to various crossroads and decisions that have finally brought us to where we are today.
It has become most evident to us that this venture, campaign and company will succeed because it will be in the hands and control of the people we serve and this will make our challenge somewhat more difficult because our members will want us to strive and continue to provide the best that the industry has to offer.
We have a vision to help benefit anyone who records video on any type of recording device and to provide them an avenue to succeed, along with us.
Success with Kickstarter will mean a stronger position of leverage, and a higher quality product will be made available to all videographers globally.
EVERYONE should have the same opportunity to have their footage viewed by as many people as possible, and receive compensation for it and we at Caught on Tape TV will make that happen.
