Shutterstock announced Thursday morning an exclusive three-year agreement with AM Stock-Cameo Film Library to make more than 60,000 HD clips available to Shutterstock users.
AM Stock-Cameo offers high-quality stock footage, with the new library to feature clips such as aerial footage, explosions, driving plates and shots of hospitals, military bases and schools.
“We’re excited to work with AM Stock-Cameo,” said Francois Arbour, Shutterstock’s VP of 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.”
For Shutterstock, the deal offers customers footage at royalty-free prices. Chris Angelich, founder AM Stock-Cameo, hopes the merge will bring closer relationships and access to studios to dispatch someone to shoot what they need, when not already available.
“I’ve spent my career building a collection I’m extremely proud of,” Angelich said. “Working with Shutterstock gives me the opportunity to have my clips reach a much wider audience than ever before thanks to global distribution.”
