I'm fishing to gauge interest so bare with me.
Its obvious to all of us that theatrical projection (and home theater projection for that matter) is moving toward 4k.
Sony just announced a line of 4k home projectors.
And its equally as obvious that 4k content will be in demand as this inevitable progression occurs.
We all know that the big guns in the stock footage market have not kept up. (Getty does not offer 4k footage)
What I am proposing is searchable 4k/5k (.r3d) image bank.
Meaning a cloud facility where you can upload your footage and tag it so it is searchable.
Low res. watermarked versions can be viewed by visitors.
If a visitor is interested in the footage they can contact you directly.
There would be a small monthly fee depending on storage needs, (100 gig chunks) to have your footage available to potential clients, in a central secure location.
In essence off-site, safe, backup files, that could generate additional income, in a non-exclusive framework (unlike the Getty's of the world).
I'm curious to here feedback.
