You can always tell when someone makes something simply for the love of it. It has this quality that can’t be manufactured. That’s been our driving idea since the beginning of Musicbed: Let musicians make music they love, and filmmakers will want to license it. And also since the beginning of Musicbed, we’ve wondered how we could do the same thing for filmmakers.
So that’s what the launch of our sister company, Filmsupply, is all about. Offering filmmakers the ability to make money from their most beautiful footage; and offering producers, brands, and agencies the ability to license the most breathtaking film clips they’ve ever seen. It’s nice how those two work perfectly together, isn’t it?
Filmsupply is a collection of thousands of clips from hundreds of visionary, award-winning filmmakers like Philip Bloom, Salomon Ligthelm, and Shane Hurlbut, ASC. They’re all rights managed and 100 percent exclusive. You’ve never seen licensable footage like this before, and you won’t see it anywhere else. We don’t represent stock filmmakers. We represent filmmakers. These are the very best clips from the very best filmmakers on the planet, and the vast majority of them (more than 75 percent) are available in 4K.
But — forgive the infomercial lingo here — it gets better. Filmsupply isn’t a static collection of clips. It’s a living, growing network of incredible filmmakers from all around the world who can be commissioned for new footage at any time. Any clip you can imagine, Filmsupply can make it happen. We’ll probably never have the most clips, but we’ll always have the best. And more importantly, we’ll always have exactly what you’re looking for.
We’re passionate about Filmsupply for the same reason we’re passionate about Musicbed. It’s a great way for the industry to support itself, and for brilliant work to be rewarded.

It’s not easy to describe an experience like Film + Music Conference. How do you take all of the details from a landmark event and distill them into something that is even mildly readable? The fact of the matter is you can’t... Read More
As we wrap up the second ever Musicbed Film Initiative, we’ve been blown away by not only the quantity of applications, but the quality as well. Thousands of filmmakers submitted ideas, and we didn’t envy our judges’ task of narrowing them down to one film. This initiative has grown into... Read More
