George Georgeadis:
Hello from Dissolve!

My name is George Georgeadis and I am a filmmaker/storyteller and the product manager here at Dissolve. I work directly with our contributors and I am beyond excited to introduce myself and Dissolve to you.

Dissolve is a new stock footage website by some of the founders and original creative minds behind Veer and iStock. We are 100% focused on selling footage and specializing in supporting the unique needs of footage buyers around the world.

We are looking to work with contributors that are as passionate about stock footage as we are. We believe that footage is at the heart of great storytelling and we are inspired by the work of this creative community.

I am not only a part the Dissolve team, but also a filmmaker and an exclusive stock producer for Dissolve, so I would like to encourage you to ask me any questions you have about Dissolve, about shooting footage, how to become a part of the Dissolve family or anything else you want to know.

We are happy to be on MicrostockGroup to start a dialogue about all things stock footage, and to invite you to become a contributor. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Here's our site:

Here's how to become a Dissolve contributor:

Not a video photographer but I was amazed the examples shown in your "Trends, styles, and techniques" section. Beautiful works.

Thank you for the great comment, while we would love to take credit for the awesome work listed on our "Trends, styles, and techniques" section, that is all beautiful work created by talented filmmakers on Vimeo, merely used here for reference and examples. Having said that, some of these filmmakers are Dissolve contributors and you will be able to find similar footage throughout the site.

Now, if you were curious and wanted to see what our creative team does with some of our footage to promote it and the contributors behind it, have a look at our showreels and short films:

Some noteworthy ones to watch:

One of our exclusive contributors Polina, doing what she does best:

A before and after of how stock footage can enhance an explainer video:

This is a Generic Brand Video - the reel that got us a Vimeo Staff pick and was featured on Mashable, Time, fastcompany etc.

Thanks again for the comment!


Agency reps/owners take note of George here. This is how you make an entrance into this community, with a solid brand, a well-built site, a clear message and unique selling point aimed at making you stand out in the market. Well done.

Can't say I'm a fan of the 30% royalty, and if I were a footage shooter I'd probably pass because of that. But I have to respect the way this offer is being presented in a professional way, something we don't see much of around here.

x2 on the above.

This site is competing with Pond5 at 50% but as we see with other sites, it is sales that count.

Two questions,

You have a link for "exclusive" clips. Is your exclusivity by clip or does the artist need to be exclusive? I'd assume the former but who knows these days.

Also, I see clips at $80 and $150. Both are HD. How is pricing determined? is it based on sales or something else?
