(New York City, New York--May 14, 2013) Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global provider of commercial digital imagery, announced today it has surpassed 1 million licensable video clips in its collection of royalty-free stock footage. The collection features a variety of content from vintage 8mm film to the latest Celebrity Footage, under a simple licensing model and affordable pricing.
“Reaching 1 million clips reflects the tremendous enthusiasm for video content right now,” said VP of Content Scott Braut. “Powerful video technology has become more accessible, giving artists the ability to create and consume more content on every platform.” Shutterstock’s collection enables everyone from enthusiasts to global companies to produce Hollywood-quality productions at affordable prices.
To celebrate this milestone, Shutterstock has worked with filmmaker Andreas von Scheele to create a short video made entirely from Shutterstock footage clips. Having worked on everything from feature films to commercial shorts, von Scheele remarked, “Shutterstock’s collection breaks through the glass ceiling of traditional stock footage libraries by offering such an immense variety of authentic and emotional content – the type of footage that works seamlessly alongside engaging and memorable professional work. Access to the collection makes me a better filmmaker.”
Shutterstock’s video library includes work from leading filmmakers around the world. Recent additions to the collection include action sports video from Novus Select, abstract slow motion clips from BIWA Studios, and CG animations by Chad Anderson.
