It's pretty clear who many of the users are for photo stock material, but who are/will be the users of audio stock material? If I have some sense of who the users are, it might better help me to create material for their use. I know that this is all new, but I'm just curious if there is any data out there showing who might be the users of stock audio.

There is also independant filmmakers and students of film/animation/web design...Anyone who doesn't have a large library of sound effects, doesn't have the means or time to go record some, and needs full resolution files (not mp3).

I work for a London based studio that produces corporate films - we are always looking for audio that conveys a strong sense of power, advancement, business and positive attitudes.


It may help if you think about the themes that are typical to these kind of films, pretty much the same themes as when shooting corporate/business stock photos :


Looking to the future


The future of industry


Working together!


Global growth and demand


Hope this helps!

I am surprised of which iS sells audio and video and not yet Editorial photo.

Sadly, I'd imagine it's because they're not getting demand from buyers for it, rather than from the contribueters who want to supply it.
