    Hi, I'm Magdalena Vallejos and I'm from Chile. Currently I'm doing a video about a research center that specializes in natural disasters in our Country (we are a country of common earthquakes), that is part of the Universidad de Chile. I know that this website have videos for sale, but we don't have a budget to buy it. I only want to use 3 takes max. no more than that, and I was wondering if is it possible to acquire some seconds to present some historical earthquakes in our region. The video has no commercial purpose, only a presentation of this Center. I hope you can help me, and kind regards.
