Just broke my records in here: in the last 24hrs I had 10 regualr sales and 9 multi use licenses all in a row! Made more today than in the last 10 days! Now I know how an elite author feels like everyday, it’s damn good!! Just hope I wont get any reversal on those sales like it already happened last time a buyer spent way too much on my portfolio! Cheers I go celebrating! =)

Needless to say I’ve already seen many clips shot at this location and I’m sure there are no property release…I would highly recommend to Envato to have a look at the editorial thing for stock footage, also because If i read Graphicriver terms for property releases it seems that can easily be applied to stock footage too.
Can I just add in the description “This may not be property released” same as graphic river?
July started really good, then slowed down a bit, until this morning when I woke up and found 8 sales reversal from the same buyer and 40$ less in my account!
A couple of years ago i uploaded a video that was rejected because of a visible hotel logo and if im not wrong it was MotionRevolver that personally blurred the logo and sent me back a.mov file via wetransfer so that i could upload it again and it got accepted straight after…2 years later i got many video hard rejected with no explanation. After i opened a support ticket they told me they dont allow you to blur people faces and trademarks anymore…
Very great start for me, in the first 3 days of july i had almost the same number of sales i made last week, hope this trend will continue for the rest of the month!
Wanna work in the hotel industry at Sheraton Frankfurt? Have a look at their promotional video! The very first 2 timelapses look very familiar to me!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj0N5hVJ6bI&feature=youtu.be
Just bought an item, I thought I didn’t have to pay VAT until the checkout when it was added. I would put it right below the item price so buyers know insted of leave it as a final surprise.
Editorial use is already allowed in Graphicriver so I don’t see why it shouldn’t be allowed on Videohive.
