VideoFort announces the launch of the first all-HD, subscription-based royalty-free stock footage provider to offer its members unlimited downloads of award-quality HD video clips. VideoFort gives content creators access to one of the most exclusive footage libraries in the world.
As the new creative hub for film producers, video makers, and motion designers, VideoFort also offers educational resources, in addition to its expansive stock footage collection. With several hundred hours of aerial footage and an extensive library approaching 100,000 HD video clips, VideoFort helps filmmakers, advertisers, and start-up businesses produce Hollywood quality video content instantly and at an affordable cost.
In addition to high-quality stock footage, VideoFort offers free VFX templates, free filmmaking tutorials, and a creative forum where video producers can collaborate and interact.
VideoFort’s footage has been used to create Academy Award, Emmy Award, Webby Award, and Telly Award winning content. VideoFort inspires creativity by giving video makers around the world unlimited access to what VideoFort calls “one of the best footage libraries on the planet”.
Video footage at http://videofort.com ranges from aerial mountain clips, African wilderness, rainforest, jungle, city and skylines, sports, health and beauty, food and entertainment; with locations ranging from Beverly Hills to Manhattan, Las Vegas to the Tropics, the Amazon to the Arctic.
Founded by Steve Gatena and Alan Purwin of Los Angeles, California, VideoFort gives creators an amazing opportunity to explore, create, and inspire. “In a world where licensing footage is typically expensive and highly regulated,” said Steve Gatena, VideoFort’s President, “VideoFort offers a premium low-cost solution, allowing creators to produce Hollywood quality content on demand royalty free.”
Membership in http://VideoFort.com also includes training, video tutorials, and access to the VideoFort forum. “By learning new skills, using VideoFort's exclusive stock footage library, and collaborating with our creative community, even novice creators can produce professional video content,” said Gatena.
Steve Gatena conceptualized VideoFort as a class project at the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies. Gatena was in search of a solution that would allow entrepreneurship students to create high-quality video promos for less than $100, without having to film anything on their own.
“There was nothing out there. After doing research on Google, I saw that all of the other sites either had major scam warnings or their quality was just below my standards. I needed High Definition. I just wanted something quick and easy. HD video clips that I could use to produce mind-blowing videos for my business pitches and class presentations,” said Gatena. “With VideoFort, video production has just taken a giant leap forward. Improvements in access to quality footage, the ability to create amazing content, and the decrease in overall production costs are unbelievable."
Alan Purwin, VideoFort’s Executive Vice President, is no stranger to entrepreneurship. The owner and founder of Helinet Aviation and ShotOver Camera Systems, Purwin successfully built and sold the revolutionary camera technology company Cineflex.
“We are giving creators around the world exclusive access to the kind of footage Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Michael Bay get to use. The aerial footage library we offer is a significant part of my life’s work,” said Purwin. “At VideoFort we are using our work to help democratize creativity, and we are doing it with the best content in the world. We are pushing others to explore, create, and inspire.”
