Key features of Platebank
Multiple angles from all locations
Unlike traditional stock footage libraries, at Platebank all locations are shot from a minimum of three angles. This enables you to shoot an entire scene with reverse shots just using background plates.
Full control in post production
Most professional filmmakers prefer to have a full control of the footage in post production. At Platebank most footage is available as ungraded which makes it easier to grade your shot and background plate together.
Detailed technical metadata
Platebank offers technical data of the plate which enables you to shoot your shot with exactly the same technical setup. Technical information includes: camera body, lens, aperture, shot height & angle plus light direction.
High resolution preview versions
All footage at Platebank is available to download as ungraded high resolution comps. This enables you to color grade, test, preview and approve your scene before you commit to making a purchase.
Platebank pricing is based on footage quality and quantity of angles you decide to purchase. You can freely choose which angles you purchase – only one angle, two angles or the whole scene with additional footage or angles, it's up to you.
Even more simple licensing
We don't have messy calculators or rules. All footage is available to license with a worldwide license for a single project. Most footage is available for commercial use. Some footage might have restrictions to be used only in editorial projects.
