I came across this site today (Clippn) that handles ingestion, cut, color, upload and ,metadata of raw footage.

Too good to be true? Has anyone worked with them?

They split rev with you 50/50. Which doesn't sound ideal. For example: You sell a clip via Pond5 who already gets half...Clippn gets half of that? 25% revenue isn't great...but you don't have to do ANY of the post production.

Do I understand the Clippn process correctly?

Anyway...thoughts?

Hello LP Productions,

My name is William Hunter. I am a contributor turned brand ambassador for Clippn.
Yes, we take 50% of any of the money we generate for you. The upside is you simply upload the raw footage right off your card of choice and we do the rest.
While we do take 50% I think it's worth mentioning that we also get a better deal with the agencies than a standard contributor.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Yes, what does a better deal mean? Search position? Percentage? Features?

Hi guys,

Typing from phone. I'll try to figure out why the link doesn't work this evening.
We get a better percentage with some of the distributors.
Some distributors don't check our footage and just accept it right away as our curators (the guys who are responsible for editing your content) are trained to clip it to each agencies needs.

Hope I'm being of some help, if anyone wants to chat feel free to email me or skype and ill do my best to answer any questions

Thanks

Could you please clarify with a list? It would be great to see how much we would actually be paying for your service.

For example: Pond5 51% instead of 50%? 70% instead of 50%? Makes quite a big difference...

From the website it looks like they strictly do partner sales through the main agencies,
So makes you wonder just how much the 50% com works out to, probably peanuts

Hi guys,

@ Increasingdifficulty, I've asked my boss if I can openly clarify which deals Clippn has with each agency, if you could email me I'll get back to you privately on that.
For now, we solely distribute through other agencies yes.
The Clippn model is optimal for people who don't enjoy the post-production/meta data side of the stock footage industry.
I understand we may not be what your looking for if you already have a existing library of curated content already available for sale on the agencies but perhaps consider uploading your next 1000 raw clips to us and see what we can do for you.
You own the footage you give to us, the contract gives us the rights to sell the edited clips for 18 months initially I believe and then 12 months reoccurring afterwards.

speaking personally:
Before working with Clippn I was just submitting stock on the side, I found the exporting, uploading and meta data especially to be very time consuming and I didn't enjoy that. Personally I love the Clippn model because it allows me to just go out and shoot - that's the bit I enjoy the most.
There are a lot of shooters like me who favour this way, yes we split the revenue with Clippn 50/50 but I've found their model to be more fruitful. The curators know their stuff and due to the number of agencies Clippn works with we sell around 50% more than the "average" contributor, this statistic is based off discussions we've had some of the agencies. I believe most of the people on this board are seasoned professionals however and that probably doesn't apply to them.

Once your approved by one of our curators your given access to a dashboard. I don't know why I can't post links ect but if you google Clippn Dashboard and go to images the first one by prweb is a picture of the UI. You can track which clip has made what for you at which agencies, what rating we give it, what you personally could do to improve, ideas and demand based on requests we get from the agencies and your monthly sales ect.

If anyone wants to know more try skyping me or sending me a email at william . hunter @ Clippn . com (remove spaces)
If anyone reading this likes the idea of Clippn and would like to work with myself please sign up through www. clippn. com/ william-hunter/ (remove spaces)
You can sign up through the site as well if you like but I won't be able to work with yourselves on a more tailored level
I'll be able to explain more over email, I don't know why I cant post links ect. Outside of work i'm a long time lurker on this forum but never posted.

I hope I've answered some of your questions, it's so cool to talk to other shooters
Thanks
William
