Storytape powers stock videos with Core SWX


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.
