Posts Tagged ‘Public Domain Movies’

You really need to be creative when thinking about public domain works. If you want to create a product from public domain materials, you really need to let your mind wonder. Think outside the box!

Sometimes you can combine one, two, three or more different types of public domain works. I mean you might consider combining a public domain book and public domain movie. Keep in mind your audience or target market and what your ultimate goal will be.

Here’s a quick idea.

Take an except from the Constitution of the United States….you do realize this document is in the public domain don’t you 🙂 …..no need to do any public domain research so far. Anyway, maybe you want to sell reprints or want to specifically target one aspect of the constitution and talk about it’s meaning.

Now maybe you want to advertise your product with a movie….lets go to YouTube. Look what I found, “Barney Fife and the Preamble of the Constitution.

I believe The Andy Griffith Show is in the public domain, you might want to check on this first. A good resource is The Public Domain Code Book.

Combining an old show like The Andy Griffith Show with the Constitution would definitely appeal to a specific audience 🙂

Just a though, I ran across the movie a couple of days ago and thought about how I might use it, sometimes the ideas you come up with are worth a goldmine….sometimes, well….they just need to be filed!

I don’t pretent to know everything about public domain resources. In fact, my knowledge just scratches the surface and whenever I run across useful information I’ll try and make it available to you in this blog.

My purpose is to get you the information you need to start making money online with public domain materials. I also want to show you how to make your websites profitable, by that I mean things like search engine optimization (SE0), website traffic, website design, social marketing and other concepts like web 2.0….basically, you need traffic to your websites and you need to be able to convert that traffic so you can sell your goods and/or services. So….in that light, whenever I find something that could point you in the right direction I’ll include it in this blog…Public Domain Money.

Remember all you have to do is pick up one idea or concept from anything you read, watch or hear…and most importantly act on that bit of information and you’ll move forward in your online interests and business. All to often people buy an ebook or some course expecting it to be a life changing read….when in reality, it is the culmination of ideas that will make you successful. Once again, it won’t matter how much you learn….you have to act on what you learn!

Getting back to pubic domain resources, I ran across a blog post that had some good suggestions, you might like to check it out at:

Public Domain Can Make You Millions

The opportunity is huge for making money with products available in the public domain which is the main reason I’ve put together this expanded section for you to learn from.

Where is public domain content available? There are literally millions of creative work-books, music, music scores, films, photographs, artwork, images, and much more that exist in the public domain. But if they’re so public, why are they hiding?

The short answer is: they aren’t. There are a multitude of well-known works that people don’t realize are now considered public property. From classic literature to non-fiction works on a wide variety of topics; silent films, classic movies, vintage cartoons and beloved songs; even some instantly recognizable artwork and images can be found in the public domain…………….

I found this particularly internets (scott parat)

public domain images and resourcesA few of the many public domain resource sites available:

Classic Book Library: A free online library featuring literary and genre novels in the public domain, from authors such as Jules Verne, L. M. Montgomery, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Viewable chapter by chapter in HTML.

Project Gutenberg: An enormous collection of novels, non-fiction books and other written work in the public domain, all available free in downloadable e-book format.

RetroFilm -com: Provides a catalogue of public domain movies, television shows, cartoons, musicals, documentaries and more. The site serves television broadcast companies and does not provide copies of film footage for individuals, but it is a great place to find titles which you can then track down a copy of elsewhere.

Public Domain Report: The site of a monthly newsletter that reveals significant works as they enter the public domain. Each issue features selections and samples from a variety of medium, at least one new book, film, play, song, image, and children’s work are included every month, from well-known authors, artists and creators like Dorothy Parker and George Gershwin. A one-year subscription will set you back $395, but for those who don’t have the time or inclination to do extensive research themselves, it is an excellent source of fresh material.

Public Libraries

Libraries are an excellent and free resource for finding public domain material. Pick a subject that interests you and scan the shelves for older books relating to the topic, or spend an afternoon browsing through the card catalogue. Most of the time, the publication date is right near the beginning of the listing on the card, so identifying works published before 1923 is a simple matter.

Another public domain modality consists of old movies and some new movies. Many of the movies from the 50’s and 60’s are in the public domain. I’ll be writing on the secret of finding these in future posts.

Do you think you might be able to put together a collection of public domain movies?

I miss shows like the public domain movie below!
