New clip sales business Orchard Clips, which launched in March 2023, has appointed Greg Aslangul as Head of Sales. 

Greg had previously worked at arabianEye, based in Dubai, where he had held a number of positions, most recently Managing Director and then as an advisor to the Board. Greg spent more than 10 years in Dubai and is an expert in how the Middle East works, is perceived and does business. At arabianEye he oversaw year-on-year periods of sales growth and helped develop key global partnerships to offer its content across multiple sectors and verticals. 

On returning to the UK, Greg recognised the opportunity to be part of and help deliver Orchard Clips’ aim of becoming the go-to destination for video clips from and about the Middle Eastern region as the demand for this high-quality content continues to grow. 

Luke Smedley, the Head of Orchard Clips commented, “We feel fortunate that someone of Greg’s experience and knowledge is joining us on this journey. With new content being added every day, support from our technology partner Veritone and some exciting new partnership details due to be announced, adding Greg to drive our global sales effort feels like a great move forward for Orchard Clips.” 

Greg Aslangul said, “I’m delighted to be joining Orchard Clips. It’s a great opportunity and the right time for me to help build something from the ground up and I can’t wait to get started.” 

Greg joins at the start of a busy period with a number of upcoming trade events and shows, starting with FootageMarketplace taking place at BAFTA on Tuesday 13th June. The Orchard Clips team will be there to meet customers and industry colleagues – and it will be a great chance for Greg to both introduce himself and the overall business. 

Orchard Clips offers a great selection of both historic and contemporary footage showcasing the rich diversity and cultural heritage of the Middle East.

The company draws on its award-winning sister company, OR Media’s 30-year archive of documentary footage and unmatched access to people, places, and events across the Middle East. The Orchard Clips team has scoured thousands of hours of footage for exclusive and elusive clip content. From events throughout the region’s history to the everyday lives of its citizens. 

Over 13,000 clips are already available with hundreds more being added every week for use by documentary producers, news channels, publishers, and brands.
