The Moviestore Collection press release issued by MediaFiler
The Moviestore Collection is an archive of over 500,000 movie images, photographs, prints & posters from cinema and television.
Created in 1992 by Ysanne Slide, the first picture editor of Empire Magazine, it delivers images on-line using MediaFiler. “We have unique collection of film & TV material going back to the start of the last century, the early 1900’s.” Said Ysanne. The Moviestore Collection is updated on a daily basis, with new titles and old favourites.
Original collection stock is continually scanned in and added to the on-line library, while the majority of new productions is now obtained digitally. This ensures that images are immediately downloadable via : www.moviestorecollection.com.
The Moviestore Collection team ensures each image is captioned, credited and key worded with the ‘content’ of the image. Moviestore’s main customers are freelance journalists and editors of newspapers and magazines who need exactly the right film-related image, often within tight deadlines.
The Moviestore Collection manager, Hannah Howard says : “We’re not surprised how publications successfully use our movie mages to promote tourism to the locations featured, Bond Movies are a prime example.” “It’s not only the countries featured but food, bars, sports and attractions related to a movie even if it’s not the actual venue shown in the movie.” “Images from City Slickers is often used to promote ‘Life Style’ change not horse riding!” said Collection Archivist, Ingrid Rydquist.
