Filmmaker-Driven Footage Collection Framepool Gaining Momentum in All Facets of North/South American Visual Media Industries

Publish date:

NEW YORK, HOLLYWOOD, PARIS, LONDON and MUNICH -- Framepool, the footage collection run by filmmakers, is making great strides within all facets of the visual media industries in North and South America, reports the company's founder and CEO, Dr. Stephan Bleek. Over the past year, Framepool's newly-opened subsidiaries across America have fulfilled custom footage requests for major projects in advertising and entertainment. Highlights include JWT's most recent Microsoft campaign and Mother’s latest KY campaign, plus work with a number of agencies in South America; original documentaries for cinema and TV (including "Betty Ford: The Real Deal," "Build It Bigger: Abu Dhabi," "Act of God," "End of America"); dramatic TV series (including Fox's "Fringe" and ABC's "Castle"); nonfiction entertainment (including several Animal Planet series); studio and indie dramatic feature films and documentaries (including the forthcoming dramas "The Proposal," "My Sister's Keeper," "The Private Life of Pippa Lee" and "The Road); as well as educational videos for NASA and a new interactive kiosk installation within the Royal Ontario Museum.

"Being already well positioned all over Europe, we decided to focus on the same values when opening our offices in the US: An all-out dedication towards customer service along with in-depth knowledge and passion for the filmmaking process," Bleek explained. "Our regional directors are all filmmakers themselves and really understand our customers' needs. We also continue expanding our archive through high-level partnerships; for example, through our recent collaboration with The National Film Board of Canada, we became the first online archive to offer access to the NFB's extensive catalog. Besides, we are deeply committed to continuously improving the technologies that make one of the world’s fastest and most efficient search engines for footage.�

To support these internal investments into its talent pool, archives and operations, Framepool has also carefully chosen its promotional opportunities. For example, the company recently sponsored the 50th Annual CLIO Awards Festival in Las Vegas and will act as co-sponsor of the Framepool/shots Party at this year's Cannes Advertising Festival.
