“The people behind Dissolve truly care. They care about the quality of the content on the site and it shows. They truly care about their contributors and their growth as artists. Dissolve is the only library that’s had someone meet me for a coffee and one-on-one chat about my portfolio!”

Bevan Goldswain

"Dissolve caught our eye because of their massive reinvestment in their own product. Their advertising is well-placed, imaginative, and audience specific, which is what you look for as a contributor. Dissolve has mastered the art of connecting creativity with commerce, and when you're running a business, that's everyone’s bottom line. It's been a wonderful collaboration so far, and we're really looking forward to seeing where we can go together.”


Reeling in attention for your footage

Our creative experts have reached into their imagination to create quirky and cool reels for our social and main sites. These reels have demonstrated how stock can be showcased and have attracted the attention of clients across multiple platforms.

They’ve received coverage in TIME, Mashable, Devour, Wired, Fast Company, Adweek, MTV, Fstoppers, and BuzzFeed. Four are Vimeo Staff Picks, and all of them together have amassed over 5 million views to date. 

It's creatively rewarding.

Some of best filmmakers and stock producers from around the world are
with Dissolve — our rapidly growing collection of unique, compelling footage
is a testament to that. Like you, we care about story, shot quality, camera movement, style, mood, and technique, and encourage that in our contributors.

Financially rewarding too.

Whether you’ve been shooting video for years or are just getting started, licensing stock is a great way to earn income, while seeing your footage
in some pretty cool projects. Our customers include major ad agencies, Hollywood film studios and production companies, and Fortune 500 companies. Contributors tell us Dissolve is one of their top-earning sites.

Exclusivity has its benefits.

If you join Dissolve as an exclusive contributor, you’ll receive perks such as a preferred royalty rate, a discount on Dissolve footage, front-of-the-line processing of clips, and the opportunity to have a featured contributor page and a contributor spotlight.

No time to edit? Try Liftoff

Exclusive contributors can also opt for our free Liftoff service. Submit your footage, and if it meets program guidelines, we’ll process, edit, and color correct, and even create keywords and metadata for it all, for free. Spend more time out shooting — leave the rest to us.

Shoot briefs and shot lists.

Though you're always free to find your own niche, we help you identify
in-demand subject and styles, based on customer searches and requests.
Refer to our in-depth shoot briefs, or have a look at what's hot in our lists.

Speak to an actual person.

No digging through group message boards and online forums for information or waiting for anonymous canned email replies. There's a team of representatives available to assist you and answer all your questions. And if you’re just getting started with stock, we have people who are happy to help you learn the ropes.
