I may be asking a silly question but if i submit a standard clip to an agency, and then submit a slow-motion version of the same clip also, will the agency consider the slow-mo clip a different piece of footage from the first standard  clip and accept it without problem? Or, will they consider it a double post and reject it? Thanks

I think it's situational,
If possible you could upload a 60 fps version of the clip which allows the shot to be used at real time or slowed down to the buyers desired speed.

If you're clips can be slowed down to slower than half speed it would probably be best/easiest to upload separate clips since ultra slow-mo has its own appeal.

It's a balance between how much work and upload time you want to commit to a clip, I always see if I can upload a single clip that can serve as real-time and slow-mo.

Personally, I've never had different speed versions of a clip rejected so it's likely not something you need to worry about.

Yep, agreed. It's not so much a question of whether an agency would want to accept a slowed down version but more a question of whether or not a potential BUYER would want it. Certainly, if the original clip was shot at a high frame rate, 60fps or even more, any potential client would take that into consideration for slow-mo potential.

That said, if the clip is really only viable by virtue of it being slow motion, then that should be the only clip uploaded.

Spudgun. Imagine a young couple running along a white sandy beach, Baywatch style, kicking up water as they made splashes with their feet - that would look good at both normal and slow motion. I know this. I'm asking if the agency would accept both clips.

Thank for the answer. Just an other question if you have to choose just one website to upload your video wish one you choose? Shutterstock ?
