Sony Pictures Stock Footage Debuts New Movie Quality Collection with 5.1 Sound

CULVER CITY, Calif.—September 13, 2011—Sony Pictures Entertainment today announced that

Sony Pictures Stock Footage

has introduced a first-of-its-kind stock footage collection featuring motion picture quality clips with custom-designed, studio-produced 5.1 soundtracks. Sony Pictures Stock Footage’s unique new

“5.1 Collection”

includes car chases, explosions, helicopter shots and other types of stunts and pyrotechnics, all drawn from recent studio film and television productions. The soundtracks were designed, edited and mixed in 5.1 surround sound by industry award-winning artists from the Sony Pictures Sound facility.

The collection is designed for filmmakers seeking high quality clips that are finished and ready for immediate use. “We developed this collection in response to the many requests we have received from advertising agencies, corporate media producers and others who want motion picture quality clips combined with spectacular 5.1 sound at a reasonable price,” said Rick Sievers, sales manager for Sony Pictures Stock Footage. “These clips were already amazing, but the addition of sound effects, mixed at a world-class facility, really brings them to life. There is nothing else like it.” “Adding sound to picture completes the storytelling process; they go hand in hand,” commented Tom McCarthy, Executive Vice President, Sony Pictures Post Production Facilities. “We believe filmmakers will be excited by the added value of this collection.” The new stock footage collection also includes a variety of extended playback sequences edited to resemble specific types of television programming. The mock television scenes are studio-quality, require no additional licensing fees, and are available with or without 5.1 sound. Subject areas include sports, news, documentaries and dramas. They are designed for monitor burn-ins and similar applications.

All of the clips in the collection are available in a variety of formats and can be previewed on the Sony Pictures Stock Footage website (

). Sievers notes that new clips will be added on an ongoing basis: “The 5.1 Collection is a great showcase of our abilities to leverage all of the great resources available here at Sony Pictures,” he said. “We have the unique opportunity to collaborate with Sony Pictures Sound group as well as other Sony Pictures’ departments to develop new and innovative products for users of stock footage. Sony Pictures Stock Footage is a premier industry resource for feature-quality HD and 35mm stock footage offering a wide range of traditional stock footage as well as a premium collection of stunts, pyrotechnics and other high production value footage. With more than 150,000 clips, the collection, available online at
