FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) one of the world's largest television clip and stills libraries, has introduced a new pricing structure for their archive department, FremantleMedia Archives to provide clients more flexibility across purchases. Currently FME offer a minimum one minute pricing point for the library material. With the new pricing structure, incremental viewings are now possible, with “shorter second rates” established.
In addition to the revised FremantleMedia Archive general catalogue pricing, FME recently acquired LA-based CelebrityFootage last December. The deal marked FME’s expansion into areas of stock and TV footage inclusive of such clips from leading international awards ceremonies The Academy Awards® (“The Oscars”), The Golden Globes®, and The Grammy Awards® to name a few. With the CelebrityFootage library, FME are also offering a more sophisticated pricing structure via an aggregation of clips to meet various client needs and requirements, which is a first for the Archive division.
Commenting on the evolving price structures, Gordon Craig, Head of Archive Sales at FME said: “FME is listening to its clients and adapting to changes in the market on a continual basis. The new short second rate and CelebrityFootage pricing have been introduced to give our clients maximum opportunity while also inviting new clients to use our fantastic catalogue in their programming.”
