| ||VIDEO SUBMISSIONS|
Please note the following guidelines for submitting your films and video to StockFood:
Model / Property Release

If the settings of your already existing footage were different, please don’t change them, we’ll do it ourselves.
Additionally, please submit PREVIEW files, named exactly the same way as the RAW files:
- Format: Quicktime (.mov)
- Resolution: at least 480x360
- Other shooting formats than Full HD, for instance SD, ONLY after consultation with StockFood.

Save the videos in separate subfolders, if:
- Different cameras
- Different frame rates
- Different resolutions
- No logos and trademarks
- Include model + property releases, if requested
- Include a caption list (essential for the keywording)
- Clearly mark any distribution restrictions
All films showing recognisable or associable people, regardless of whether they
are professional models or not, must be accompanied by a "Model Release". A model
release is a written declaration of consent by the person featured in the film
to assign all rights of use in the film (including reproduction and circulation
with no time limit) to the photographer. We cannot market pictures of people with
no model release, as among other things, they are barred from any promotional use.
Even though a model release is not always absolutely necessary for films showing
people out of focus, pictures of hands etc., they will have a much greater chance
of being sold if they too are accompanied by a model release.
Similarly, films showing someone else's property (vineyards, wineries, private
houses, businesses, cafés, restaurants etc.) require a "Property Release" statement.
We also require a property release for films of your own house.
All films must be either accompanied by a release (if appropriate), or marked "No
