Commentaire / Comment
I support the Commission’s proposal that stock footage costs be considered as “other” costs rather than “services” costs and the excluding of stock footage costs from the calculation of 75% Canadian threshold. We find although it might have been a Canadian company that filmed the original footage, they sometimes now use a foreign company to license their stock footage libraries resulting in producers having to license Canadian footage from a foreign entity. When stock footage is included in the 75% minimal expenditure, this limits the amount of stock footage that can be used in documentaries which impacts creativity in telling the story. We welcome the proposed change.
