Dissolve signs FootageBank as an exclusive
contributor — adding over 80,000 video clips to its exclusive collection
NEW YORK — Dissolve is pleased to announce it has signed FootageBank as an exclusive contributor. Now, more than 80,000 rights-managed FootageBank video clips are available at dissolve.com.
This agreement reflects Dissolve’s mission to build a robust collection of exclusive video content. “Our customers are savvy media producers,” says Aaron Booth, Dissolve’s Director of Products. “They want fresh content, content they’re not going to see anywhere else. With its carefully curated, eclectic library, FootageBank fits the bill perfectly.”
FootageBank has been in the stock footage business since 2002, supplying large-format and HD footage to television, theatrical, and corporate media buyers. Its collection features the work of award-winning media producers, cinematographers, and production companies, including one-of-a-kind content from 70mm film shoots and big-budget television productions.
“For years, we’ve been working with the film and television industry. Our relationship with Dissolve significantly broadens that reach,” says Paula Lumbard, founder of FootageBank. “We love Dissolve’s creative approach to the business and their like-minded focus on high-quality video content.”
This agreement brings the total number of royalty-free and rights-managed clips available for licensing at Dissolve to over half a million. “You can expect to see that number grow substantially this year,” says Booth. “Especially when it comes to exclusive footage. We’re determined to give our customers unique content for their projects.”
