Shutterstock Supplies Footage For On The Spot

Shutterstock will again supply Bellum Entertainment with key footage for their ongoing series On the Spot, an entertaining and educational half-hour program geared towards families and teens.
"By using the extensive library Shutterstock provides, we can better serve our audience with striking images," explains assistant producer Matt Coccoluto. "Each of the three segments in each episode features a different category. The categories contain a number of questions at a fast pace. Questions range from basic history, like 'who was Ponce de Leon?' to more unique questions, such as 'can a cow have an accent?' Each question is explained with the help of Shutterstock footage.
"Shutterstock has a large library of high quality footage of all types, which helps us supplement our content and tell certain stories with greater detail."
For the question about Ponce de Leon, the answer was to discuss how he was a Spanish explorer who sailed around the world looking for The Fountain of Youth, and accidentally "discovered" Florida. Bellum's production team combined photos with stock footage of sailboards, Florida, Spain, and even the ocean to help tell the story.
"There is an undeniable connection between education and visual imagery. Our footage collection empowers Bellum's message and advances that relationship," stated Ben Pfeifer, Shutterstock’s VP of New Business.
