iStockPhoto Looking for Indie Video Footage

Jul 31st, 2006 | By | Category: Video, Video Podcasts, Vlogs

iStockPhoto, a leading community-powered marketplace for stock photography and illustrations, is expanding into video, and will be selling indie video at a new site, iStockVideo.

Anyone can apply to become a video contributor at the site. iStock videographers will collect downloads, earn royalties and receive “video reels” like photographer canisters to show their sales levels.

Beginning in September, iStock will sell broadcast-quality footage, with a focus on digital formats, including HD video. Thirty-second clips will start at $5. The new video clips will be accessible at“There is a huge demand for video; people want up-to-the-minute, top-quality footage, but current prices are keeping most potential clients out,” said Bruce Livingstone, founder and CEO. “iStock is excited to provide videographers that same immediate connection between artists and global customers, just as we did with stills.”
