Hey there, I’m looking for some input regarding some rejected clips I submitted. So I have a few clips on my profile that I put up a few years ago which were accepted and were filmed with a Canon T3i. Honestly the quality is just okay, partially due to the camera but those clips were accepted and some have sold.
So I have some new footage that I uploaded FOUR months ago, and I finally get notified today that they are rejected for not meeting quality standards. There is no other specific feedback…and “quality” is a subjective word. I filmed these clips with a 5dmk3 and I see absolutely no difference between these clips and the other clips I have that were previously accepted. In fact, if anything these clips are higher quality. These same clips were accepted on pond5 and on shutterstock, so why aren’t they good enough here?
I’m feeling very frustrated and disappointed. To wait 4 months to have clips rejected and only receive limited and subjective feedback for the rejections with no real direction for future improvement. It’s kind of insulting.
