      A friend of mine and I have been shooting general nature videos this past weekend. He has this idea that movie studios, news agencies and other buy stock footage to complete their projects. What are some of the better companies for a newbie to upload footage to?

      I don’t think it matters the degree of professionality.

      It just depends on how much you’re selling it for, and how much it’s worth.

      As long as you have good lighting and a professional look, the way that you prepare and export the footage also matters

      go to pond5.com and click on the link at the bottom of the page that says “sell your footage on pond5”

      it will tell you all the info you need to know about selling your footage there!

      Good Luck!

      I’d be interested in hearing who has actually made good money in selling stock. I’m all about developing multiple streams of video production income and have thought producing/selling stock could be a great way to supplement my regular work. I imagine it’s like anything else…if you find a niche that has a lot of demand but little supply, you can do very well.

      Hey Fred,

      After starting my own stock footage site, http://www.unlimitedstockmedia.com, last year and having done a lot of research for the various needs for stock footage and talking to a lot of different producers out there, I’ve found that one good looking generic shot will outsell 50 mediocre shots. Variety is also good but look for those things that might be easy for you to get would be a pain for others to try and shoot themselves. This is what increases the value of a clip: quality, applicability, and difficulty. You could throw creativity in there as well depending on the situation.

      I agree! The production value of the video has a lot to do with the amount of sales you make. I suggest getting shots with Jibs, steadycam’s, dolly’s, I have made a lot of money with stock footage but its just like anything else! If you want to make it work, you have to work at it! I don’t care what anyone says! There is no such thing as easy money!

      but why not work on stuff you like! I give away 4 Free Stock Footage clips every week on my website for Free!
