Index Stock – Aviation at its Finest From StockFootageOnline
The prominent aviation history and contemporary footage library IndexStock continues its partnership with the best portal for premium motion content: StockFootageOnline. Index has a very long history, with specially-shot footage from aviation going back decades. We are pleased to have them renew their position on this website.
With their “Chocks away!” in 1966, Index Stock Shots celebrated 50 years in the footage industry last year. Founded by aviation film maker Gerry Weinbren, the genre has long been a speciality of the collection, featuring 35mm colour footage of aircraft, airlines and airports from the fifties to the present.
They have a wide collection of aerials, including landscapes, cities and travel, but the main focus of their collection is aviation, past and present, which makes them a major specialist library in this area, and proud partners of StockFootageOnline.
Above image is the classic Constellation airliner from the 1950s.
Index are particularly proud of the footage they have supplied to feature films over the years, including The Thirty-Nine Steps and the Bourne films.
The film-makers’ collective has been acquired by RightSmith, and is now powering forward with a new and more professional business model. They are a valued part of the specialist footage portal StockFootageOnline. The place where researchers can quickly find premium content for every kind of project.
RightSmith is a leader in media archive management and monetisation, with offices in Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, and Sydney. Jackie Mountain, President of the RightSmith Group says, “Framepool will be able to access more customers and markets, and also we will be making technology and UI improvements, which will give users a better experience overall, but also tons more content.”
RightSmith plans to raise the value and profile of both brands by utilising its high profile exclusive representative of global collections such as NBCUniversal, Guinness World Records, The Amazing Race collection, and Cinesound Movietone. Framepool’s vast unique collection, established brand, and European infrastructure were some of the key factors which drove this acquisition.
Framepool is one of the highest-performing motion libraries because of their expert content and upmarket production values. This is a good fit with both RightSmith and StockFootageOnline, which are both dedicated to providing important visual media assets to create high production value.
Facebook has created “Watch,” the social video platform will offer a plenty of original content created in partnership with familiar content creators such as ATTN, BuzzFeed’s Tastemade and Conde Nast, among others.
Watch will be available on mobile, on desktop and laptop, and in their TV apps. Shows are made up of episodes — live or recorded — and follow a theme or storyline. To help viewers keep up with the shows they follow, Watch has a Watchlist so they never miss out on the latest episodes.
Watch is personalised to help facebookers discover new shows, organised around what their friends and communities are watching. For example, viewers wil find sections like “Most Talked About,” which highlights shows that spark conversation, “What’s Making People Laugh,” which includes shows where many people have used the Haha reaction, and “What Friends Are Watching,” which helps them connect with friends about shows they too are following.
Facebook says that they have learned from Facebook Live that people’s comments and reactions to a video are often as much a part of the experience as the video itself. While shows go out, there will be interaction with comments, and dedicated Facebook Groups for each show.
Initially it will be launched in the USA, and rolled out elsewhere over time.
