Artbeats has debuted a wide range of exclusive royalty-free collections and solo clips. New titles include: Ultra Water 2 and Ultra Nature, which feature 1000fps (frames per second) slow-motion footage shot with the Phantom HD, the first use of that camera for stock footage.
Additionally, Artbeats has unveiled its newest series of HD aerial titles: Miami Aerials, Atlanta Aerials, Dallas Aerials, and Texas City Aerials. The company also released Energy and Environmental. Energy includes aerial clips of wind, water, solar, petroleum, and nuclear energy. Environmental features footage of air pollution, recycling, replanted timber, and more. Other titles include Executive Jet, which offers landings and takeoffs of business jets plus exclusive air-to-air footage of a Gulfstream IV, and City Edges, which has unique and dramatic close-up shots of city skyscrapers and architecture.
“Artbeats’ 2007 production schedule was extremely busy. We took to the skies in a nose-camera equipped Learjet to capture cloud fly-throughs, shot dozens of cities from helicopters, and hiked to remote locations to capture ultra slow motion footage of waterfalls and nature. We used the Learjet’s Vectorvision system to shoot air-to-air footage of a Gulfstream IV, a first in the stock footage industry,” says Phil Bates, president of Artbeats. “We use the industry’s best camera equipment and technology so that we can capture high-quality footage of subject matter that is difficult, if not impossible, for our customers to shoot themselves. We are very excited to offer these new collections.”
