Fourth of July

This post goes out to the approximately 40% of our stock footage buyers who are in the U.S.A., as we look ahead to American Independence Day. We have videos to enhance your Fourth of July productions / events / marketing campaigns, ranging from flags and fireworks, to streamers and confetti, to more abstract animations. All of them are loopable, so you get the benefit of being able to extend the video for as long as you want.

Check out our Fourth of July videos. Here's a video giving a taste of what's on offer:

New videos on-line!

It feels great to be making new stock videos again! (After a break to focus on other projects, and on the marketing side of running a stock footage business.) We have added about 30 new clips so far - most of them are abstract animation loops, plus there is also a bit of camera footage. The video below gives a taste of some of our new clips. See more on our New Videos page.

Once upon a Christmas Eve...

In the snowy Arctic, we see an embroidered reindeer amongst fabric trees decorated with buttons, and we follow a path of growing candy canes to a little gingerbread house set amongst marshmallow snowballs. In the sky above, Santa and his reindeer fly past on their Christmas Eve travels. A bright star shines in the sky and leads us to the little town of Bethlehem where three kings ride on embroidered camels. All is peaceful on the earth as we zoom out to see our planet in space, before returning to the Arctic to begin our journey again.

Looping Christmas animation, in a quirky collage style, mixing different media such as fabric, photography and paint - a stock video by Synthetick. See more versions in our Christmas Scenes footage gallery.

Blue Christmas

December is here already, and at Synthetick we have some great Christmas videos for your holiday season video productions! In fact, Christmas footage is one of the niche content areas that we specialise in. Our Christmas videos have been popular with a wide range of buyers, who especially like the way that most of our Christmas animations are loops, so the duration can be extended indefinitely. Our Christmas backgrounds have even been spotted on Saturday Night Live!

Throughout December I'm going to be posting about some of our Christmas content and to kick things off I've put together a collection of our Christmas videos in icy winter shades of blue (and a little bit of purple) - proving that Christmas color schemes don't have be the traditional red and green! So check out our Blue Christmas Footage Collection. And here's a short video featuring a few highlights from the collection:

Sparkler Countdown to 2016

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... The 2016 version of our New Year's Eve sparkler countdown is now on-line!

A sparkler writes a countdown, from 10 to 1, and then writes the date 2016, to herald the start of the new year. The last six seconds is a loop of fireworks going off, so you can extend the video for as long as you like.

Welcome to the brand new Synthetick website!

Welcome to Synthetick’s new website and to our first blog post! It’s exciting to see the site go live after quite a few months of planning and coding. We hope that this site will be a valuable tool for helping customers find our footage.

We would like to thank all our buyers for their fantastic support over the past 8 years! We would also like to thank Shutterstock, Pond5 and Getty Images - we look forward to working with you for many years to come!

Synthetick is a growing library of instantly-downloadable stock video clips, B-Roll, HD and 4K footage. Synthetick's stock video clips are sold under a Royalty-free License which allows you to use the footage worldwide, for multiple uses, and without time limits, in just about any creative or commercial context. We specialise in digitally-generated animations, in niche subject areas, including Communication, Networking, Nature, Celebrations and Seasonal Content. We make content that is creative, clever and useful, with high standards of design and production.

After successful careers in TV news and current affairs, and multimedia, Harriet Thompson went on to run her own busy motion graphics and animation studio, Synthetic, working with corporate clients, advertising agencies and film and video producers. As a buyer of stock footage she was sometimes frustrated in the search for the perfect clip, and in 2008 she started producing her own stock videos as “Synthetick.” Since then, thousands of satisfied customers have bought Synthetick’s video clips to use in a wide range of productions, from websites through to feature films.

Synthetick is based in beautiful Auckland, New Zealand.

To get your footage search started, please browse our stock footage categories!

Our videos are available in a range of sizes from Web size (426 x 240 pixels) up to 4K size (3840 x 2160 pixels). When you have found a video that you would like to purchase, click on the size you require and you will be re-directed to the same video at one of the agencies who represent Synthetick's stock footage: either Shutterstock.com or Pond5.com, where you will be able to purchase and download the video. Pricing varies between the two agencies, so we have carefully chosen the links on this website in order to ensure that you get the best price for each of the available sizes. Note that you will need to register with Pond5 or Shutterstock (if you haven't already done so) in order to buy the video.
