Stock footage often gets a bad wrap, and, to be honest, rightfully so. There are so many sites out there that focus on having the most stock in their libraries -- the most diverse clips, the most HD -- which isn't inherently a bad thing, but what about quality? This is an issue new stock footage site Filmsupply addresses directly.
Created as a compliment to Musicbed's popular music licensing site, Filmsupply offers filmmakers, producers, and agencies footage captured by some of the world's most celebrated filmmakers, like Shane Hurlbut, Philip Bloom, and top production companies around the world.
Like Musicbed, Filmsupply exists not only for those who need content, but also for content creators. It's there to benefit both. Founder and CEO of Musicbed and Filmsupply Daniel McCarthy explains why he and his team decided to launch Filmsupply.
For years, film directors and producers have looked to Musicbed for quality music to help tell their stories, while also supporting great musicians. We are launching Filmsupply to further connect and serve our community of filmmakers, giving them a way to monetize hours and hours of amazing footage that was previously left on the cutting room floor.
Filmsupply offers a lot of great features. Here are three of our favorite:
- They have a global network of over 220 exclusive, hand-picked contributors that allow users to commission exclusive footage. All content is rights-managed and all files and contributors are exclusive to the site.
- Their collections are highly curated and highlight the filmmaker who captured the footage.
- 75% of all of the footage on Filmsupply is available in 4K.
