What to Create: October 2018


This month we’re focusing our attention exclusively on aerial filmmaking. Breaking down the subjects of what to create with aerials reflects the same primary categories that we capture on the ground — based on the same data from customer searches and revenue that we employ for all of our creative briefs. With that said, let’s keep our eye in the sky and examine a few of these top-selling aerial categories.

Check out the links below for each of this month’s individual creative briefs. Once you’ve completed one of them, a unique code needs to be applied to each clip. Just add the code (provided at the top of each brief) to your keyword tags when you upload. That way, we’ll know which brief you’ve been focusing on.

If you have any questions or comments about any of these briefs, please email Pond5’s Director of Artist Development and Experience, Robert Pascale, at
