Stormstock content is now available on Footage.net
Footage.net, the stock, archival and news footage search engine announced today that preview clips from StormStock, the world leader in extreme weather content, are now available for viewing through Footage.net’s stock footage search platform.
Through this new alliance, Footage.net users will be able to screen preview clips from StormStock’s footage collection, and StormStock will reach a new and growing user base for its specialty footage licensing business.
“We are excited to partner with Footage.net and further expose the quality and breadth of the StormStock collection to media professionals worldwide,” said Martin Lisius, StormStock founder and President of Prairie Pictures.
“StormStock is a pioneer in the field of extreme weather filmmaking,” said David Seevers, Footage.net’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Martin and his crew are passionate about capturing the awesome power of hurricanes, tornadoes, lightning, blizzards, volcanoes, and other dramatic weather events and disasters. They frequently put themselves in harms way to give viewers a front-row seat to nature at its most extreme, and we’re thrilled to have their clips up and running on our search platform.”
Lisius holds the distinction of capturing the first-ever violent class tornado on 35mm (1998), the only 35mm images of Hurricane Katrina making landfall (2005) and the first-ever tornado on 3D (June, 2011). StormStock’s work can be seen in numerous TV commercials, documentaries, TV programs and feature films including the Academy Award winning doc “An Inconvenient Truth.”
“We’re constantly looking for unique ways to shoot material for StormStock,” said Lisius. “We’ve been shooting on Super 35mm since 1997, building an extensive collection of high-resolution content along the way and positioning ourselves for a seamless transition to HD. Recently, we’ve begun moving into 3D production and are very excited about the possibilities of this new format.”
StormStock’s clips will be available for screening through Footage.net alongside motion content from some of the world’s most prestigious footage companies, including Getty Images, FootageBank, Framepool, and CNN ImageSource.
