PremiumBeat Music is Now on Pond5


PremiumBeat music is available on Pond5! We’re thrilled to have their gold-standard tracks in our audio arsenal. Here we will explain why PremiumBeat is a trusted and prestigious industry favorite and how to find their tracks on Pond5.

Who is PremiumBeat?

Since 2005, PremiumBeat has been the go-to source for professional video editors and post-production houses across the globe. PremiumBeat was founded by video creators with a simple mission. To offer the best quality music and sound effects in an easily licensable way.

As a part of the Shutterstock family, PremiumBeat can expand upon its mission by forming new partnerships like this one. Together we bolster the Pond5 library of high-quality music and make it easier for video creators to access the tracks.

The PremiumBeat family is an international team of renowned music producers, designers, programmers, video professionals, and writers passionate about music and filmmaking. They work with real musicians to craft an absolutely incredible library of music. They reject 99% of submissions. And the 1% of accepted tracks receive close collaboration between in-house Premiumbeat producers and the musician.

Because of this, they are a trusted source for superior music with creatives at Billboard, National Geographic, Vogue, and Google. Just to name a few. PremiumBeat music has also appeared in numerous television ads, Youtube videos, and documentaries.

On staff, PremiumBeat has several filmmakers and video creators who help inform the best on-site experience and product offering–they even publish informative and inspiring blog articles that have become a pillar of the filmmaking and post-production community. Check out topics covering film education, like overviews of Basic film genres, Documentary films, and VR movies, or get started with free assets like Motion Graphics Templates and Free LUTS (color look-up tables).
