Need stock shots/animation of human heart
December 12, 2011 02:23PM
Hi there,

I'm cutting an internet infomercial about human heart disease/attacks/etc.

I need to find animation depicting the human heart and - if possible - live video shot inside the heart and the circulatory system which show plaque and whatnot.

I have looked in Artbeats, Footageheads and have Googled but cannot find anything which is a library shot for sale/license.

The people I am working for will pay. I see that Getty Images has some heart beating animations which are $129 for medium res 480x360 15ips which seems reasonable.

But I can't find any "real-live" non-animation shots inside disgusting arteries etc.

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks,

Harry,

Have you tried Googling "medical stock footage"? Sounds to me like your request is so specific that regular stock-footage companies wouldn't serve your needs.

I could be wrong, but it sounds to me like you're looking for House, M.D.-style, customized creations. The human heart is not easily photographed from the inside. It's not like the gastro-intestinal tract where you can swallow a camera pill. And you're looking for a live human heart, too, which means you're looking for somebody alive -- and healthy enough -- who's willing to risk a cardiac event just to get footage. Even if hospital patients consented to the filming for medical reasons, trying to clear that for other uses...I can't imagine it'd be easy.

Yes. I see your point. No person in their right mind wants a camera stuck into their heart!

I guess animation for the heart section will have to be ok, but I want to find some "real" shots of the inside of arteries. I have found an MRI of a working heart which is pretty cool. And have found animation of interior of arteries - but cannot find real arteries.

Thanks for the response, Derek.

Any further ideas welcome.

Best

Harry.

i worked on a project that needed similar footage. (not as specific as what you need)
the producers found an obliging doctor.

the footage was b/w, and rather poor quality, with a smaller frame size than Standard Def.

sorry, i threw it out already sad smiley

You may try an Human body encyclopedia on DVD.
Some have 3D views.

The best site for 3D = TurboSquid:

[www.turbosquid.com]

enter "heart animation" or "beating heart" in the search and you will find plenty.

Try Yobi3D, it's a 3D model search engine with a 3D viewer, so you can see what they look like first before downloading.
