New initiative provides filmmakers with the opportunity to reach a global audience while earning incremental revenue from their ProRes RAW video work

Apple has an almost unmatched history of reinventing the ways in which we create and consume media. They’ve continued that path of innovation with ProRes RAW … and we’re beyond excited to be among the first to help share the results of that innovation with the world.

Global video marketplace Pond5 today announced a plan to create a new collection of royalty-free licensable video shot with Apple’s recently released ProRes RAW codec.

Filmmakers working with cameras or gear that can capture ProRes RAW footage — such as Atomos monitor/recorders for selected large-sensor cameras and DJI’s X7 — are encouraged to apply to the program now at pond5.com/proresraw. Those selected for the launch of the collection will have their work promoted to a global audience and will also become eligible to receive free footage preparation services from the Pond5 team.

“As a massive force in both the tech space and the video production industry — not to mention the world at large — Apple has an almost unmatched history of reinventing the ways in which we create and consume media,” said Pond5 CEO Jason Teichman. “They’ve continued that path of innovation with ProRes RAW, providing entirely new opportunities for both capturing and working with video, and we’re beyond excited to be among the first to help share the results of that innovation with the world.”

The new initiative follows the launch of Pond5’s RED collection, as well as the international expansion of the Pond5 DJI collection, a further recognition of the technology companies that enable cinematographers to create their most captivating work and fully realize their creative visions. It also offers the opportunity for filmmakers and video artists to repurpose the footage that didn’t make the final cut on a particular project, giving it new life as creative content for other high-profile productions.

“We are delighted to see the expansion of the ProRes RAW ecosystem with Pond5’s announcement. It allows our ProRes RAW customers to benefit from the most advanced RAW video format available today, on the leading platform for stock video footage. We launched support for ProRes RAW last NAB, and Atomos recorders now enable 12 large-sensor cameras from Canon, Nikon, Panasonic and Sony. Within the next year, we expect that over 20 cameras will be able to deliver ProRes RAW. This will give video professionals even more options to take advantage of the flexibility of RAW with the performance of ProRes when working in Final Cut Pro and other professional software.”

All footage contributor applications received via the form at pond5.com/proresraw will be considered for the launch of the new ProRes RAW collection on Pond5, currently planned for Fall 2019. Artists submitting are asked to provide a link to their work, along with details on which camera they shoot with. Both pre-existing and new work will be considered, as long as the artist fully owns the copyright, with submissions judged on quality, creativity, and category demand in the Pond5 marketplace.

Pond5 also offers a free app for Apple’s Final Cut Pro X, which can be downloaded at https://www.pond5.com/fcpx.
