What We’re Looking For
We’re looking for awesome, amazing, epic, and staggeringly beautiful 360 videos of all categories and genres, including:
• classic stock video and photos: fashion, lifestyle, sports, and location-based footage
• editorial and news content
• motion graphics, motion backgrounds, and VJ loops
Regardless of the style of your stock media, it should be of extremely high quality. Commercially-oriented work should be professionally shot or recorded and carefully chosen. Editorial and archival content should be informative, powerful, and tagged with accurate contextual information. Please use your good judgement in uploading your clips, and upload only those clips that are likely to be commercially viable.
Put Your Footage, Music or Photos to Work for You
Step 1: Upload your work in the form of short (5-60 second) clips. You will need access to a high-speed internet connection to do this, as media file sizes are sometimes very large.
If you do not have access to a high-speed internet connection, then you can submit your clips on a hard drive or DVD (not more than 6 DVDs per submission) to the address listed on our contact page. Make sure to clearly mark any materials you send to us with your username and a return address.
After you upload your files, we will automatically process them, creating a low-resolution, watermarked version for previewing, and extracting all the relevant technical information (duration, size, format, etc).
Step 2: Tag your files with info, including a description, keywords, and a price.
Step 3: Earn! After your clip, track or image has passed the review process, it will be placed online. Buyers everywhere will be able to search for, preview, pay for and download your content: instantly, online, 24-hours a day.
Each time a clip, track or image is purchased, you will be credited 60% of the price you have set. On the 15th of every month, you will be able to receive your earnings by paypal.
