Storytape, an online subscription service for downloading cinematic 4K stock footage, travels the globe to capture diverse clips for its video database. The company uses Core SWX’s Hypercore SLIM 7 V-MT and XP-L90S batteries for capturing footage across various and distant landscapes.
Storytape was started when company founders Brady Shearer, Brandon Canning, Tristan Persaud, Alex Mills and Ryland Frank, saw a need for quality stock footage at an affordable price. Finding only limited and expensive stock video options, the group set out to compile and curate over-the-top 4K footage for content creators such as YouTubers, small businesses and independent filmmakers.
To accomplish this goal, the founders set out on a mission to build a database of over 5,000 4K ProRes clips. With cinema-quality gear, including Core SWX’s battery solutions, they travelled the world; from the USA to Switzerland, Ireland and Iceland.
While filming throughout rugged landscapes Canning and his team utilised Core’s Hypercore SLIM 7 V-MT and XP-L90S battery packs on Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro cameras.
The Storytape website recently launched and will add over a thousand new clips to its database every month. The service is available to users as a paid, monthly subscription.
