FIREHORSE ARC AND SHUTTERSTOCK STRIKE EXCLUSIVE DEAL
“This is an important archive to bring to a global audience,” said Tom Spota Director of Video Acquisition at Shutterstock. “It is a privilege to be able to offer such diverse and rare footage to film and TV makers around the world. The importance of what ARC has captured on film, before and during the current changes taking place in the Middle East, will stand as a powerful record of everyday life and also lost treasures.”
Mouna Mounayer and Najat Rizk, co-owners of ARC, added, “the body of content we offer has particular significance and resonance right now and will continue to have in the coming years as many of our clips are of places that are no longer accessible or have been destroyed, such as the heritage sites of Syria and Iraq.
No one will be able to capture these places and the life around them in the same way again. Working with Shutterstock we will be able to give a greater number of media professionals access to this valuable archive.”
Firehorse ARC and Shutterstock, a leading global provider of imagery and music, have agreed to a five-year licensing deal.
