First stills database to include TV series
You may think that searching images on websites such as Pinterest or Google will offer results, but the fact is that it’s time consuming and doesn’t offer accurate results. On top of that, most of the images are not ready to be used because of their poor quality, they are hardly ever High Definition. Flim is different, as carefully selected new images are incorporated on a weekly basis. Indeed, every single image is shortlisted by an AI but then approved by the Flim team. This crucial validation step guarantees the artistic quality of every screenshots. Quality wise, all the images are HD and ready to be used on every format: say goodbye to moodboards with low quality/pixelated images.
As noted above, Flim is the first stills database to include TV series. In fact, Flim is starting 2022 with a novelty: TV series are now available. This is a major innovation in the sector of video imagery database since Flim is the first one to include this genre: more than 22,000 screenshots from 34 series are already on the catalog.
Flim, a tool for creative people
TV Series became essential in the entertainment industry, and inevitably also became essentialin contemporary visual culture. For the founders of Flim, Dan Perez and Victor de Castéja, it was therefore obvious to include them in their tool intended for creative people.
Flim founders met back in 2009 at the school of the “Arts Décoratifs” of Paris. They both persued they own careers in the field of audiovisual media before launching together in 2020 the perfect tool for creative minds to communicate their ideas: Flim. Flim is currently accompanied / advised by three French incubators: Paris&Co, WILCO and Belle de Mai.
Dan Perez and Victor de Castéja share their vision for the company: “At Film we believe that image search should incorporate a deep visual awareness, capturing an image’s artistic style and general mood, as well as its atmosphere and composition, rather than just the objects in it. It’s the complexity within cinematographic imagery and video imagery overall that is inspiring. Every single shot is carefully conceived, composed, illuminated and decorated. It was our mission to develop a search engine encapsulating the essence of this complexity and richness.“
