Pond5 Debuts Its New Collection of Premium Aerial Footage Shot by FAA-Certified Pilots and Filmmakers Using DJI Drones

Global content marketplace Pond5,
in conjunction with DJI,
the world’s leading manufacturer of civilian drones and aerial imaging
technology, today unveiled the first wave of content in its premium
collection of licensable aerial
drone footage.

Included in the launch of the
Pond5 DJI collection are shots by FAA Part 107 certified pilots that
cover a spectrum of landscapes and perspectives — from stunning natural
terrain to urban cityscapes, rare shots of animals in the wild, and
sweeping overviews of modern industry. The content will provide buyers
in the Pond5 marketplace with numerous and exciting options for their
film and video projects.

“The response to our call for filmmakers using DJI drones is truly
inspiring,” said Pond5 CEO Jason Teichman. “We received a wealth of
aerial footage to choose from for this collection, and it’s continuing
to roll in non-stop. Being able to provide our buyers with shots of this
quality captured by certified pilots speaks directly to Pond5’s mission
of supporting filmmakers on both sides of our marketplace, and to the
passion of the artists in the DJI community.”

DJI has been working closely with the team of video experts and curators
at Pond5 on the genesis and launch of the collection, helping to ensure
that the most compelling and award-worthy aerial footage shot with DJI
products is made easily accessible to customers searching for
studio-quality shots to use in their productions.

“This collection marks the start of a new era for filmmakers looking to
purchase and sell drone footage,” said Michael Perry, Managing Director
of DJI, North America. “We’re always amazed at the sheer quality and
diversity that pilots using DJI drones display in their work. Bringing
this creativity to the millions of filmmakers who use Pond5 in a way
that reinforces safe and legal drone operations is extremely rewarding.”

By applying to join this program, pilots operating with a Part 107
Remote Pilot Certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA), which is required for US commercial use, are presented with the
opportunity to leverage Pond5’s industry knowledge in identifying their
most in-demand shots, as well as potentially obtaining assistance in
preparing their footage for licensing in the Pond5 marketplace. Pilots
certified in territories outside the US are also encouraged to submit
their credentials, as there are plans to further expand the scope of the
collection in the near future to include certified pilots from all
around the world. For more information on applying and to view the newly
released Pond5 DJI collection, visit pond5.com/dji.
