another stock footage site

Another site for you guys. Saw it posted here on Dvinfo, do a search for the posting.

Pond5.com is by one of the members here. I haven't tried them but it seems pretty interesting in the way the royalty distribution is done. You get 50% of the commission of the sale and you keep the rights to your clips. The site seems to be based out of Oregon.

All this time I been looking for an excellent place to sell my footage have brought me to 3 good places since I had to dump one of them off my list because they want full rights to the footage and pay very little. I could try both and do a report on it. I think my information would be very helpful to a lot of people.

John Kang,
I appreciate the help you are giving me.

Well there is:

New clips are going up everyweek.
We have Sony, Canon, JVC & Panasonic camera owners submitting footage. Even have a few Cine-Alta and VariCam owners on board! Plus we are even getting some awesome sports footage shot on 16MM & 35MM in soon!

Has anyone tried selling their footage on their own website? I see Yahoo has 'Merchant starter kit' with a shopping cart function.

The downside is now you're in the stock footage biz, which could eat up a lot of time. The upside is if you sell enough, you're getting a higher slice of the pie.

I've sold HD stock footage on my old website. I'm currently working on a site to sell my HD stock footage. I specialize in North American predators and have been expanding to include predators from around the world as other nature and lansdcape footage.

Because of the rarity in most of these shots, they are all rights managed. But we've had allot of interest and have been doing quite well and our website isn't even up yet. :)

Lucky for me, I have a business partner that loves to market so she handles all the office work and leave me to shoot the footage. It works quite well.
