Our newsdesk team creates a specific video brief every time breaking news happen and monitors every upload. Once you submit your breaking news video to specially created video brief, our news team gets notified about it instantly and sends your footage to news buyers ASAP. Time/speed are the major requirements when it comes to news sales, aren’t they? 🙂
Look at video briefs like at trending film genres. There are comedies, dramas, horror movies and many others. Imagine, what a nightmare it would be if your favourite movie page would stop classifying films and put them all together, despite filming date and category! Perhaps, you would switch to another TV website/company, where you didn’t need to spend much time looking for particular genre. Same with news buyers. They prefer to keep clip search as clear/easy as possible. If you assign your video to the video brief, there are more chances for your video to be noticed by a client looking for the specific topic clips at this time!
How can I assign the most suitable brief to my video?
To choose the best-fit video brief, we suggest to click on different video assignments which seem suitable for you and check the specific description of each. We always give detailed description of videos we’re looking for in a specific category. Once you find yours – don’t delay and upload your material so we could check it out!
What if video brief expires soon? Can I still upload my video there?
Yes, yes and yes! Your video will be still available for licensing and our production team has access to closed video briefs in case if similar request from buyers comes.
Will my videos be deleted once video brief expires?
No, your videos won’t disappear after the expiry date. They will still stay on the platform with all details you’ve mentioned (story details, filming date, tags and etc.) and will be assigned to the brief on the back-end, so archive researchers can easily find it whenever there’s another similar TV request.
