NEW YORK, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global provider of imagery and music, today announced an exclusive three-year agreement with AM Stock-Cameo to make more than 60,000 HD clips available to Shutterstock users. This robust, diverse library features aerial footage, explosions, driving plates, and shots of hospitals, military bases, schools, and more. This is essential footage for transition and establishing shots.
AM Stock-Cameo has thrived thanks to its relationships with Hollywood studios. Over nearly three decades, AM Stock-Cameo has delivered the second-unit needs of Hollywood producers to offer high-quality and relevant stock footage that has aired on some of television's most popular programs.
"We're excited to work with AM Stock-Cameo," said Francois Arbour, Shutterstock's VP, Product, Video and Music. "Over recent years, we've seen an increased interest from the Hollywood community to license Shutterstock imagery and music, and this relationship helps us provide those clips to our customers. It's truly a one-of-a-kind library we can now make available royalty-free."
Amid the recent television boom, the demand for both authentic and contemporary footage has only ballooned. Such a vast and prominent collection of high-demand footage is hard to come by.
"I've spent my career building a collection I'm extremely proud of," said AM Stock-Cameo's Founder Chris Angelich. "Working with Shutterstock gives me the opportunity to have my clips reach a much wider audience than ever before thanks to global distribution."
Small businesses like AM Stock-Cameo cater specifically to directors to fill in second-unit shots that convey certain aesthetics and styles. Now, for the first time, filmmakers around the world will be able to match Hollywood's best in their own productions.
