Shutterstock New Footage Subscription Offer

Posted on 4/17/2020 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Shutterstock, Inc has launched an annual subscription for Shutterstock Footage. Shutterstock’s collection of 18+ million HD and 4K video clips are now available for license through a range of cost-effective monthly plan options or for less than $9 per clip through an annual plan.

Current pricing per-clip purchased is $179 for 4K or $79 for HD. With the new subscription offerings provided the customers make a one-year commitment they can get 10 clips for $159 or 20 clips for $199. Thus they can now get 10 HD clips per month for the price they would have previously paid for 2 or 10 4K clips for less than they would pay if they buy then one at a time.

If a customer just uses 25 HD clips a year, they can now get them through a subscription for less than they can purchases them one at time. And they could get up to 95 additional clips at no additional charge. If the customer prefers 4K they can one clip a month for less than they currently pay and an additional 109 4K clips during the year at no additional charge.



In its press release Shutterstock also says to contributors “Faced with challenges to produce high-quality video content at scale, new footage subscription provides content creators with efficient solutions to meet market demands.”

eMarketer recently forecasted that US adults will spend 108 minutes per day with digital video in 2020 and this number will increase to just under 2 hours by 2021, further highlighting the need for fresh video content. The new footage subscription is geared toward digital content creators, including video editors, freelancers, and social media managers, who need more flexibility while still accessing a breadth of high-quality, diverse and authentic content.



“Producing a video shoot can be costly and challenging, particularly in situations where production and location-based shoots are restricted, as they are now. Film producers, video editors and marketers have always leveraged our footage to deliver both continuity in a scene, as well as entire video narratives, but with the additional recent challenges of social distancing guidelines and restrictions on gatherings, today’s producers are looking for flexible resources to help them deliver on projects,” said Jamie Elden, CRO at Shutterstock. “With video consumption trends increasing now more than ever, the market needs to quickly and easily access fresh, relevant and affordable content.”

Shutterstock adds more than 75,000 HD and 4K clips every day, providing customers with an ever-current collection. Additionally, the advanced search capabilities including search by Frames Per Second (FPS), duration, resolution, or category, enable video creators, editors and marketers to quickly find what they’re looking for.

New footage pricing options include the ability to choose from 10 or 20 clips a month, with annual upfront, annual monthly, and month-to-month billing options available. Learn more about the new pricing options here.
