The event will explore how still and moving image creators, who may have terrific footage in their libraries, or would like to go out and hunt for stunning images in their downtime, can capitalize on these efforts. “We'll see how to present your images to Stock Footage houses, what they are looking for, and what kinds of images are most valuable,” a DCS spokesman said. “We'll also look at minimum and best formats required for acquisition and delivery as well as examining best practices for how to manage the media and archive your images in the ever more complicated milieu of varying formats and storage mediums.”

The featured speaker will be Tom Spota, director of video acquisition at Shutterstock. Other participants include DCS Advisory Board member, cinematographer and still photographer Mark Forman, as well as a representative of The Studio-B&H, and a special guest speaker yet to be announced.

The event is free but attendees must RSVP to save a space and to get updated information. RSVP with your contact details and Stock Footage in the subject line to [email protected]
