Sony Pictures and Thought Equity Offer Film Footage for Online LicensingThought Equity specializes in the licensing of premium film and HD motion imagery (March 27, 2006)
Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) and Thought Equity, home to the worlds largest entertainment motion content library, today jointly launched the Sony Pictures Collection, a distinctive library of film footage that includes scenes shot during the production of SPEs box-office hits and cinematic masterpieces.
The Sony Pictures Collection is an unparalleled partnership that marks the single largest motion content investment in the stock footage business and unites film content from SPE (and its theatrical brands, including Columbia Pictures, TriStar Pictures and Screen Gems) with Thought Equitys exceptional technology and user experience and is offered to the production community through www.thoughtequity.com/sonypictures.
Thought Equity specializes in the licensing of premium film and HD motion imagery aimed at serving world-class production professionals. The Sony Pictures Collection provides producers worldwide with instant access to high-caliber footage filmed for its blockbuster franchises as well as from some of the most beautifully filmed features ever made.
The Sony Pictures Collection features footage that is costly, time-consuming and physically demanding to shoot, including explosions, stunts, natural phenomena and scenes from remote geographic locations. The collection includes technically challenging footage depicting extraordinary atmospheric and outer space scenes, and sophisticated special effects. Highlights of the collection include footage specifically designed to evoke emotions that are adrenalin-pumping, inspiring, humorous and poignant.
The collection boasts unique international footage filmed in environments that require months or years of staging, including scenes from remote locales, as well as ones that capture fortuitous circumstances impossible to recreate. At the same time, the Sony Pictures Collection includes highly usable footage in great demand, such as establishing shots. It offers some of the best coverage of American metropolitan cities like New York and Los Angeles and the all important driving point of view footage. Still, the library is rich with process plates, footage that serves as background when actors are filmed in front of a blue or green screen.
The Sony Pictures Collection footage was shot entirely on film and is hand-selected for entertainment and creative use. The collection is available for immediate online download in HD and lower resolutions, and can also be delivered in any film element required.
