JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND RCA RECORDS
Kurator partnered with RCA records and Freenjoy to create a music video for Justin Timberlake’s hit song “Supplies.” The concept began with a powerful opening scene featuring a wall of televisions playing footage from recent social movements like #BlackLivesMatter, #MeToo, and #NoBanNoWall. Producers turned to Kurator to research, curate, and license over 100 clips from a wide variety of sources to complete this scene, allowing their own teams to focus on the big-picture narrative and remaining production.

Caribbean Travel and Sherpas Cinema
In 2018, renowned film studio Sherpas Cinema was hired to produce a campaign video for Caribbean Travel, sourced entirely from third-party Vimeo content. Kurator handled all licensing agreements, arranged talent releases for all models, and provided custom indemnification for the entire project, protecting all parties from fringe case legal risk and allowing Sherpas Cinemas to retain complete creative control.
– FILM AND TELEVISION –
In 2016, Marvel Entertainment was producing their latest film, Captain America Civil War. A critical scene in the film takes place at the International Centre building in Vienna. While they could shoot a majority of that scene’s footage off site, producers wanted aerial footage of the building’s exterior to help define the location. Instead of sending a production team to Austria to film, they hired Kurator to find and license existing third-party footage, saving them valuable time and expense.
