The digital library will contain short clips running to 5-to-30 seconds apiece, divided into various categories including Habitats, Plants, Time Lapse, People & Culture and Underwater. There is footage from OTF shows including Wildest Latin America (pictured), Wildest Islands, Wildest Indo China and Wildest Africa.
Customers will be able to view and pay for content online. At launch there is about 60 hours of high definition wildlife content available. Off the Fence said that with most of its new shows being shot in 4K, wildlife content in the new standard will be added soon.
“We have accumulated a vast amount of incredible footage from our productions over the years,” said Tom Osborn, archive manager at Off the Fence. “With an expansive footage library slowly gathering dust on shelves and a growing demand for high quality wildlife imagery it seemed the perfect time to make use of all the footage we have to offer.”
