Whether you’ve never considered shooting stock or are looking for a hassle-free way to get into stock footage licensing, Dissolve’s Liftoff™ program could be the solution. Liftoff is designed for busy filmmakers and production companies that create professional-quality dramatic or documentary films, commercial work or passion projects, even experimental cinematography and travel footage.
Don’t let your valuable assets collect dust on hard drives. If you own the rights to key footage or have hours of beautiful B-roll, we’re here to help your work find new life as stock and maximize your licensing potential.
The Liftoff program is available to exclusive Dissolve contributors who aren’t selling stock footage elsewhere. Once you’ve signed up as a contributor, there’s only one step left: upload your raw, unedited footage for review. (See the submission guidelines.)
Our expert team will then edit your footage into commercially viable clips, perform color correction and processing, provide keywords and metadata, and publish the clips to our site — at no cost to you. It couldn’t be easier to get into the stock footage market.
Clips from the Dissolve Liftoff™ program are promoted to our stock footage customers through four exclusive collections: Dissolve Filmmaker™, Dissolve Elements™, Dissolve Pose™, and Dissolve Auteur™. Filmmaker is curated for commercial appeal and solid storytelling — clips that avoid cliché while capturing relatable themes of life today. Elements include high-quality, highly useful clips of popular themes, such as travel and aerials. Pose features people smiling
for the camera or acting the part. Inspired by cutting edge film, fashion, and fine art, Auteur features the most personal, creative, and forward-thinking visions
of talented cinematic artists.
Clips from these collections appear prominently in search results and research requests and may feature in Dissolve's renowned marketing campaigns.
These collections are also promoted to our highest-value customers including top ad agencies, Fortune 500 firms, and Hollywood production studios.
