creating successful packs

what is a "motion pack"?

A Motion Pack is a cohesive collection of vertical videos featuring a specific location, style or theme.

Designed for social media feeds or to be used as a video background for text, graphics, photos, or incorporated into content designs for the coolest brands, businesses or content creators.

• A Motion Pack includes between 4-20 videos.
• All videos should be at least 4 seconds in length.
• All videos should be silent, all sound removed
• All videos should be HD, vertical, and sized 1080x1920.
Read more about our file requirements on the Submission Checklist.

choosing a visual theme

When deciding on your pack's visual aesthetic, it's important to have a clear theme in mind that keeps the videos cohesive. Approach each pack like you're creating a brand campaign - as opposed to just individual videos.

Your theme can be extremely specific (like a pack of someone making coffee) or more general (like a pack of summer scenes). We encourage you to get creative and have fun with your pack's themes - just make sure all the videos go together as a collection.

TIP: Make sure you're creating something new that doesn't exist in our library yet - we're always looking for fresh & unique video content to push our library above & beyond!

create with the customer in mind

Most Packsia members are business owners, content creators, and social media managers who are looking for beautiful video to incorporate into their advertising, social media content, or website. They're main focus is to find unique & beautiful content to help promote their brand's message, products or services.

Here are some real-time insights on who Packsia members are and what aesthetics they love.

TIP: If you're stuck, create a pack with an industry in mind. What kind of pack would an interior designer want? Or a restaurant? Or a business coach?

how will my packs be judged?

Packsia is a highly curated video library. We pride ourselves on offering the most beautiful, creative and original art-in-motion for our users. Our curation team will be judging your work based on the following criteria:


Your videos cannot contain any known brand names, logos, trademarks or information about specific individuals.


You have full creative control over the packs you make  - so get creative! We're always looking for something new that doesn't already exist in our library.


The look and feel of your packs should be cohesive & visually dazzling - something that a cool brand would want to put their name on.


Above all else, the videos you submit must be sized correctly, clear (not blurry or pixelated, unless used as an obvious artistic choice), and not shaky or hard to watch.

common questions

can i use a mobile phone to film my pack?

Yes! We recently started accepting packs filmed on mobile devices. However, keep in mind that quality is of our utmost priorities, so make sure your videos are top notch!

will you edit the videos i submit?

No, we won't touch them! All submitted videos should be final & ready to be licensed.

can i use stock video or elements in my pack?

No, for licensing reasons, we cannot accept packs that contain stock footage or elements. Please only submit packs that are 100% original and made by you.

can i film people in my videos?

You are absolutely encouraged to include people in your videos, however it is your responsibility to obtain permission from anyone in your videos to use and license their image.

racial diversity

When using people in your videos, we highly recommend including multiple skin-tones when possible. Racial diversity is something our users appreciate and will ultimately lead to more downloads of your videos.

submitting your pack


No, unfortunately we cannot accommodate changes once your pack has been submitted to us. Please make sure it's exactly how you want it before you submit!


When you fill out the submission form for your new pack, you'll be given an opportunity to write-in a possible name for your pack. If you don't know what to name your pack, you can leave this blank and our curation team will name your pack for you.


You don't have to submit behind-the-scenes content, but it is absolutely encouraged! Our team will use it to create social & marketing content like this.

pack approval

is not approved?

You'll receive an email notification from our team even if your pack is not approved. We'll let you know why, and you'll always have the option to adjust and re-submit.

royalties & payments

how do royalties work?


Every month, we allocate 50% of our revenue to a "Creator Royalty Pool". This sum of money is used to pay our Creators every month. Then, we calculate the total number of downloads that were made on Packsia that month.


The Creator Royalty Pool is divided by the total number of downloads to determine that month's royalty rate. The royalty-per-download changes slightly every month depending on our monthly revenue & total downloads - so when our business grows, so do Creator royalties!


Every month, our Creators are paid their share of the Creator Royalty Pool based on their downloads that month. Creators have access to monthly royalty statements in their dashboard so they can monitor their earnings and track their best performing packs.

getting paid


You will be paid via the payment method you selected when setting up your payment information. You can update this anytime in your Creator Dashboard. You'll be paid monthly - around the 15th of every month, for the previous month's earnings.


You can always monitor your downloads, see analytics, insights on Packsia members and submit new packs on your Creator Dashboard.


There is no need to submit an invoice to us. We'll calculate your royalties based on your downloads.
