Musicbed, the music licensing website in which many filmmakers rely on for quality pieces to accompany their videos, has launched a new site with big goals in the film licensing sector. Filmsupply is not content with the way stock footage tends to always stick out, and wants to change that with a highly curated library from hand-picked contributors.
Filmsupply’s initial library offers thousands of Full HD 1080p and 4K film clips (more than 75 percent of the site’s footage is available in 4K) from top visionary filmmakers such as Shane Hurlbut and Salomon Ligthelm. Their global network has more than 220 exclusive, hand-picked contributors.
“No matter where you insert it, stock will always look like stock,” said world-renowned cinematographer Shane Hurlbut, ASC. “With Filmsupply, you don’t have to sort through low quality content because they have pre-screened it to give you the best.”
On top of their film footage licensing library, Filmsupply is also giving customers the opportunity to quickly get any clip they can imagine, from anywhere in the world, by facilitating the creation of custom footage.
Like Musicbed, which began with only 35 musicians before expanding to the over 600 represented today, Filmsupply is also interested in continuing to build their collection with top filmmakers and add new, helpful features to the site. All Filmsupply content is rights-managed and all files and contributors are exclusive to the site.
