Stock photo agency Shutterstock are now offering royalty free music to accompany image and video properties the agency offers.
They say: ‘When choosing the name for this new offering, we decided against the word “audio,” which didn’t reflect the palette of emotion that we wanted to offer to creators — hence Shutterstock Music. When searching the site, you’ll find awesome, high-quality music to add to your project, be it something serene to represent nature, something bluesy to signal playfulness, or maybe a classical track by Vivaldi that will flow perfectly in your story. There’s a wide range of amazing options for whatever you’re working on.’
• Licensing details: ‘As you would expect, we have one of the simplest licenses in the market, with only two price points: $79 for a standard license and $499 for an enhanced license. Both of these prices are discounted for launch, so you can come try it out at up to 30% off. Our goal is to make music licensing easy for online video producers, creative directors, music supervisors, broadcasters, and anyone else who wants to create a story with music.’
