Hi fellows;  as it happens from time to time, I'm asked to complete a low low budget project with stock image video...and Im always stoked to see how badly the video choices from Getty and Shutterstock still are these days. Does anyone knows of an nicely photographed, curated, acted, image bank?  Thanks for your input! Cheers; Arturo

I've been putting stock footage up on Nimia, which is curated.

Bad choices on Getty Images?  I highly doubt that.  It's the biggest most prestigious stock firm in the world with the lions share of the world's business.

Hey, thanks a lot Rakesh and Phil, I've known Nimia, but Pond5 seems to have some nice stuff;-)

 

Richard, it's not that Getty is bad, only I wish there were something with a modern profile, better curated, in shape with my usual work. There are some nice scenes, but they are like 10% of all they have there. Thanks for your input anyway.

 

If anyone else has more choices, keep sending them! Or let's make one;-)
