OSF has appointed Absolutely Wild Visuals as its new representative for its footage library in Australia. The deal gives Absolutely Wild Visuals exclusive rights to license OSF footage in Australia and non-exclusive rights in New Zealand and Asia. Absolutely Wild Visuals is a commercial, on-line provider of high-end, rights-managed stock footage and is one of Australia's foremost independent wildlife stock footage collections.
Jane Mulleneux, Head of Collection at OSF, commented 'This deal has been a natural progression of our existing association with Absolutely Wild Visuals. OSF already represent the Absolutely Wild Visuals collection outside Australasia and so a reciprocal agreement allowing them to represent our footage has been an easy step to make; our collections compliment each other perfectly. The deal will add 2000 hours of OSF's world-renowned footage to the Absolutely Wild Visuals library, creating a premier resource of moving images for the Australasian market. Absolutely Wild Visuals have extensive experience of the Australian markets, they are making significant inroads in to Asia, they provide an excellent level of service and have a strong online presence, all key considerations for OSF when identifying a new agent for the region'.
Absolutely Wild Visuals' Library Manager, Fiona Pearce Burrows, explained 'This deal with OSF is an exciting development for Absolutely Wild Visuals, and coincides with our advances into the Asian film and TV market. The OSF collection will allow us to offer our clients a vast amount of high quality footage that we've previously not had on offer, especially in the areas of medical science and special effects. We are delighted to find OSF is like-minded in their philosophy where serving clients efficiently and cost effectively with the highest quality footage available is always a priority'.
OSF has a long-established library, which will add strong images, including footage of nature, wildlife, science and medicine, global locations, timelapse and special effects to compliment the Absolutely Wild Visuals range.
