OceanFootage Launches New, Expanded, and Advanced Services
The Web’s Best Ocean Footage Collection Announces Next-Generation
Online Capabilities to Serve Buyers, Providers Alike
Pacific Grove, CA. November 12, 2003 – The world’s most extensive ocean footage collection just got even better, thanks to new, next-generation services now available at OceanFootage! This acclaimed web service for viewing and purchasing ocean stock footage now provides faster and higher-quality access to an expanded collection of video and film from the world’s best ocean footage providers.
For its improved online presence, OceanFootage has added a new high-quality preview option, rapid downloads of preview and master footage, advanced searching and browsing by category to quickly find available footage, and web-based shot requests – all available to ocean footage buyers whenever needed, “24/7.” These new capabilities all serve the site’s core mission: to help footage buyers find the exact ocean shot they need, and to do so fast, affordably, and in the format that fits their project.
“ Both the footage buyers and the leading cinematographers we serve are extremely pleased with the options and features provided by our new expansion,” comments company founder and president Dan Baron. “They tell us that the new OceanFootage site represents the next generation of capabilities they need for continued success in a high-tech world.” He adds, “Along with all the immediacy offered by an Internet-based, real-time service, the site’s new look and improved ease of use – especially the new capabilities for higher-quality previews, immediate downloads, advanced searches, and shot requests – all provide exactly the kind of groundbreaking online service that users require, and value.”
With these new capabilities, it’s easier than ever for OceanFootage visitors to get the magnificent ocean shots they seek – and to do so immediately online. An Advanced Search, for example, allows clients to rapidly search the online collections by defined categories such as camera format, subject, behavior, and environment. Or they can browse by category, exploring such popular subjects as whales, sharks, dolphins, and hundreds more. And if a shot is not available online, clients can immediately make a custom shot request online, to the OceanFootage global network of over 100 ocean cinematographers. Depending on the speed of connection, users can choose to see higher-quality online previews, and can also immediately download preview footage for evaluation with their team. Once they have chosen the desired shots, they can purchase and rapidly download the master footage in just a few mouse clicks.
Such unique capabilities truly set the site apart – and are provided in the spirit of better serving OceanFootage’s global community of cinematographers and their footage. It’s also why an impressive number of the world’s foremost ocean cinematographers readily embrace the site and its collaborative environment, as OceanFootage allows prospective buyers to see and purchase just what they need from each cinematographer’s best work.
In addition, to better serve ocean cinematographers (who generally prefer being in the water to staying in the office), OceanFootage enables them to easily place their digitized footage for sale online. The cinematographers themselves (who know their footage best), can define keywords, set pricing, and ultimately remain in control of their own media. It’s an advantage that returns to the OceanFootage customer tenfold, making its collections easy to search and keeping its prices reasonable.
“ Customers value rapid footage access, including online search, preview, and purchasing capabilities, and that’s a key part of the OceanFootage service to buyers,” adds Baron. “And independent ocean cinematographers and stock footage suppliers value the ability to maintain control of the branding, logging, and pricing of the footage they shoot. This level of service to cinematographers remains a big priority for us, and is one reason our site attracts so many highly visible, award-winning providers and their collections.”
And while superior online technology is critically important, OceanFootage is best defined by the sheer wealth and beauty of its footage. OceanFootage’s magnificent collections include almost any kind of ocean-related film or video motion images imaginable – above the waves, or below – and all instantly available at the visitor’s fingertips. Its comprehensive library of subjects provides footage buyers with the world’s largest online selection of ocean moods, vistas, and marine life.
And OceanFootage doesn’t just offer the best ocean footage around - they shoot it, too. As talented filmmakers in their own right, its people are skilled in marine biology, experts at underwater cinematography and documentary production, and (most importantly) passionate about the sea and about bringing its animals and environments to people, companies, agencies, and clients worldwide.
Founded by a team of accomplished ocean video producers and marine experts, OceanFootage provides the world’s largest and finest online collection of ocean stock footage. The people at OceanFootage have gone to great lengths - and depths - to provide the most diverse and visually stunning footage collections available anywhere. From DV to HD video and film, OceanFootage’s large collection and industry-leading e-commerce interface offers clients the best in search, preview, purchase, and delivery for rapid and easy access to ocean footage.
