OceanFootage Offers New Approach to Online Representation!
Pacific Grove, CA. March 16, 2004 – As one of the stock footage industry’s most unique success stories, OceanFootage has seen more than a year of continuous growth with its online stock footage website. Key to this success has been OceanFootage’s unique new approach to online representation, a ‘partnership’ approach that is now attracting talented cinematographers from across the globe. The company is now issuing an open invitation for talented footage providers worldwide to submit their ocean-related film and video footage to the site for licensing and potential inclusion.
As the world’s largest and finest online collection of ocean stock footage, and the leading website for viewing and purchasing ocean stock footage online, OceanFootage is a fast, comprehensive, and superb quality stock footage solution. OceanFootage offers a truly exciting and revolutionary opportunity for the footage providers it partners with, giving them a whole new way to reach buyers through its “Global Community Marketplace.”
With OceanFootage, we’ve created an entirely new way
of representing stock footage providers,” comments Founder
Dan Baron. “We want to make sure talented
DPs and providers everywhere are aware of our status as a service-based
offering profile pages and greater control of their media, and
that we invite – and welcome – their participation.”
OceanFootage currently works in conjunction with more than 100 talented ocean cinematographers worldwide – many of them among the most acclaimed in their fields, such as Bob Cranston, Howard Hall, Nick Caloyianis, and Pawel Achtel. The company is constantly seeking to better serve this global community of cinematographers and DPs through a collaborative, teamwork approach, and gives providers the unique opportunity to showcase, market, and license their best work. Thanks to OceanFootage, these providers have much more control than they would with any other company, and are able to set pricing, constantly monitor their progress, put their newly digitized footage up for sale directly via the website, and more.
OceanFootage serves a wide variety
of customers worldwide, and its clients include leading broadcasters,
and production companies. Its vast ocean footage collection has
been used for broadcast television shows and commercials, museum
and educational productions, feature films, corporate presentations,
multimedia, and Internet content. Utilizing OceanFootage’s
easy and wholly comprehensive online collection, buyers can search
by keyword or browse by category. The site also offers an Advanced
Search, allowing clients to quickly and easily search by such defined
categories as subject, behavior, camera format, and environment.
If specifically desired footage is not available online, clients
can even make an online custom shot request to the OceanFootage’s
global network of providers, as well.
“ Especially in today’s fast-paced creative world, independent cinematographers don’t just value the ability to maintain control of the branding and pricing of the footage they shoot – they demand it,” adds Baron. “And so do we. Ocean DPs and cinematographers are the foundation of our business, and keeping them empowered on a number of different business levels remains a major priority for us at OceanFootage.”
With an aggressive marketing campaign to reach targeted groups of buyers for its footage, OceanFootage already produces top results on search engines, with over 500,000 hits per month. OceanFootage is also listed in the major online stock footage directories and is featured in select print Stock Footage directories published by leading industry sources. The company's ongoing marketing initiatives will continue to increase the revenue-building value of OceanFootage to its participating footage providers.
OceanFootage’s solicitations for new footage providers encompass all aspects of ocean footage, above and below the waves. This stunning collection includes almost every kind of ocean-related film or video footage imaginable – and it’s all available online. The company also seeks submission of nature footage on a highly selective basis for their upcoming collection at NatureFootage.com.
