About Dissolve

Exceptional stock footage and photography

At Dissolve, our vision is to transform stock footage from so-so to spectacular. Empowering today's visual storytellers with exceptional stock footage and photography from the world's most exciting and relevant shooters. We license stock video and images for use in commercials, television shows, documentaries, feature films, design, and creative work.

Dissolve's video and image collections are hand-picked for technical quality, aesthetic style, and cultural relevance.

Dissolve footage

Dissolve's collection features some of the world's most inspiring and talented contributors. Our exclusive collections range from bold and artistic to relatable and utilitarian. We even have 'stocky' options. All fully released, and ready to use.

Our exclusive Liftoff™ collection is produced in-house, distilled from the professional and personal projects of talented filmmakers — commercial spots, narrative films, documentaries, travelogues, and experimental cinematography.
