Creators Are Facing Big Challenges

Demand for video content is at an all-time high, and continues to grow.

This is a multi-billion dollar market for the content that creators like you make.

Yet every year it's harder to make a steady living as a working creator.

Rates are lower, hours are longer, and there is more competition for work.

It doesn't make sense, and it's making things  tough for our fellow creators all over the world.

There has to be a better way to adapt to all this disruption and change.

We built BlackBox to help free our fellow creators from the "gig to gig" and "feast or famine" cycles of freelance and contract work so they can do the work they lovegig less, earn more and have better lives.

Our goal is to help creators become owners of the content they make and earn passive income instead of working for others.

So, What Is BlackBox?

BlackBox is a global platform and community that helps Film & Video creators tap into the massive demand for content, and make steady passive revenue, even when collaborating. Stock Footage is our starting point and we make the process as easy as possible.

Here's How It Works:

 
 

Step 1

Shoot well-crafted footage of the world around you or "mine" your hard drives for footage. Be creative, resourceful, and passionate. You don't have to do this alone, you can use the collaboration features of BlackBox.

Step 2

Upload your footage to BlackBox, then add Metadata, and we'll get it to all major stock agencies for you. This frees up more of your time for shooting.

Step 3

Passive Revenue! Every time your clips sell, you (and your collaborators) get paid. For years. The bigger your portfolio, the more you make... and it's all on on autopilot.

 

BlackBox handles all the "business stuff" for you so you can do more of what you love.

 
 
I received another email this morning titled: ‘You have a payout from BlackBox.’ What a great feeling! The best part for me is I can share the wealth with my collaborators, from talent to editors etc. It really is genius.

BlackBox is revolutionizing the way filmmakers collaborate and share revenue.

Film & Video production is a team activity that takes time, effort and commitment. So we built a system that allows creators to collaborate and share freely and safely so everyone involved gets paid their share. 

 

Let's say you're a shooter, and don't want to process your footage.

You can partner with an "editor/curator" from the BlackBox community, and assign them a percentage of revenue (a "share"). Now you can focus more of your energy on what you love, and you both make money.

Or maybe you want to collaborate with actors/models, a studio or even a rental house.

Any person or entity can be part of BlackBox too. Just make them "sharers" of the content, and get busy making great work you can all benefit from. It works!

 

When content sells, everyone gets paid!

No contracts, lawyers, or sketchy deferral deals necessary. Just work together, and BlackBox will take care of the rest, securely and reliably.

 
 

Now just imagine how this approach will work on projects like movies, series, music, games, etc..

That's where BlackBox is headed. 

We envision a world where creators truly
own a piece of everything they work on.
When we say revolutionary, we mean it. So please join your fellow creators from all over the world and let's build a community we can all be proud of!

BlackBox is what I’ve been looking for, for years. It’s given me the creative freedom to work with who I want, when I want and get paid for it fairly. I am so excited for the future with this company!
