Calm, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, To Be of Service
Content in the Wild is a new, recurring series about you – your success, your talent and your hard work. In each instalment, we’ll reveal three high-profile projects that are using Pond5 media. All deals were facilitated through the work of the Pond5 Creative Partner Team. Prepare to be inspired because this is where your work ends up!
Sound familiar? If you are one of the 40 million people using Calm every night to relax before going to sleep, then you are listening to your fellow Pond5 contributors’ work! This popular app for sleep, meditation and relaxation, with over 700,000 5-star reviews, features more than 170 music tracks and SFX created by Pond5 artists.
Calm, a billion-dollar software company based in San Francisco, has been licensing both music and SFX from Pond5 since 2017 to fuel their popular meditation app. In October 2019 Pond5 and Calm partnered closely over a 4-month period to upgrade their content set in order to reflect the increase in popularity of their service. Calm is now serving over 40 million users with mediation services powered by Pond5 content.
“The Calm company reached out to Pond5 to partner in using our content for their award-winning app. After working closely with their team through a 4-month process examining all technical requirements and gauging the distribution level, we were able to confirm their content & licensing needs.
It was great to start working with Calm at the very beginning of the company’s need for stock media, before the app’s present popularity, and to be able to help scale and transform it to its current level!”

The Walking Dead – THE WORLD BEYOND
The zombies are coming! We‘re proud to announce that Pond5 content will be featured in the brand new Walking Dead series that is going to air on AMC later this year. You‘ll be able to spot Pond5 clips in 5 episodes of this two-season TV show.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond is an upcoming American post-apocalyptic horror drama series created by Scott M. Gimple and Matthew Negrete. It‘s a spin-off series to The Walking Dead, which is based on the comic book series of the same name. The series will consist of two 10-episode seasons.
“I truly enjoyed working with the team, it took some time to get a name for the project, but once they confirmed, I was excited as I’ve read a lot of the Walking Dead comic books. I hope this show will become something great, not only as a fan of the IP, but as someone who was able to help through Pond5’s great content.”

To Be of Service
To Be of Service is a feature-length documentary film about war veterans suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and the impeccably trained service dogs they’re paired with to help them regain their lives. These veterans’ experiences returning home are often characterized by depression and a disconnect from the world they once inhabited. They struggle to return to civilian normality, whether it is a job or reunion with their families and old friends. The dogs bring independence and a feeling of safety along with a new measure of happiness and hope to these brave warriors we sent into the maw of war.
“We are always grateful to have opportunities to help fully realize projects of this scope and impact. The importance of this film to veterans, and to society at large, cannot be overstated.”
