A Clip Bin is a place to store and organize clips that interest you for easy reference later. You can create multiple Clip Bins for different projects or topics, and add clips to them as you browse the site. To purchase clips that are in your Clip Bins, you will first need to add them to your cart.
How do I sell my footage to Azzurramedia?
We do purchase footage from other videographers, but do not offer percentages. We are paying a flat buy out fee for footage on a non exclusive basis. (You are free to sell your footage anywhere else). Because we are a small boutique company we are looking for unique footage. We prefer collections of 10 to 20 clips and pay from $300 to $700. Clips must have talent/property releases where applicable. All clips must be native 1920 x 1080 30p (we will consider 24p). We do not accept PAL, DV, or standard definition of any kind. For more information please call or email us.
What is the Keyword Assistant?
Keywords can be added to a clip in two ways: by writing them into the keyword field, or by using the Keyword Assistant. The Assistant is simply a series of checkboxes for commonly used keywords. By checking on the appropriate box, you can quickly add these keywords to your clip.
When is a model/property release required?
If the clip is meant to be used for commercial purposes, you will need the model release we provide for each recognizable individual depicted. For editorial footage (that is, footage which is newsworthy or has documentary value), model releases are not usually required. Likewise, there aren’t any trademarks, logos or brands depicted in the footage. The required releases are provided as part of the download when you purchase a clip.
