MammothHD adds high-res footage to collection E VERGREEN, CO — MammothHD ( is currently expanding its collection with a variety of new material, shot mostly in 4K and 6K with Red cameras. In addition, shooter/producers from around the world are currently collecting footage that will become part of the MammothHD library. Also at press time, the majority of Mammoth's Red shooter/producers are in the process of upgrading their cameras to the Red Dragon 6K Sensor. "We will start adding the 6K material as soon as it arrives," says owner Clark Dunbar. "With the pending release of Red's RedRay player and codec, MammothHD will be offering 4K preview on special request for those critical large format reviews [RedRay Player required]. Tied into RedRay, we will also be opening a ODEMAX Channel for the MammothHD demo materials in 4K, along with 4K content." The MammothHD Library offers a wide variety of footage, including lifestyle, sports, aerials, wildlife, nature, natural history, industrial and more.

Shutterstock gives away digital camera package N EW YORK — At last month's NAB show, Shutterstock (, a provider of royalty-free digital footage, had a drawing for a $5,000 digital cinematography camera package that included a new Canon 5D Mark III DSLR fully outfitted with a range of digital cinematography accessories, including a Sachtler Ace M fluid head, a Schneider Optics 4 Filter Holder with Rotating Sunshade, a Litepanels MicroPro on-camera LED light, and a Petrol Bags Cam 'n Go backpack. Ozzie Carrillo's business card was randomly pulled out of a bag by Shutterstock's Brian Masefield. Carrillo is the production manager at KVIA-TV in El Paso, TX. "You're always editing a project and realize you have an empty hole in the middle, with no original footage to fill it," says Carrillo. "With Shutterstock's great search tools, I can look for a timelapse or scenic shot to fill it in. The fact that Shutterstock has a lot of high definition footage was a big selling point to me." 10 Post • May 2013 Post0513_009-10-Stock GalleryRAV3FINALREADALMOST.indd 10 T3Media targets TV and film producers D ENVER — T3Media (, a provider of cloudbased video management and licensing services, has grown its library and product offerings, targeting the workflows and budgets of TV and film producers.

The latest additions include outtakes from Columbia Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man, which includes police helicopters, scenic NYC aerials and more.
