    This sounds like something I could video, but who does the stitching together of the 3 videos? Would I upload separate 4K clips, or can I put them together myself?
    Can you help, please?

    @denisw - Pond5 does not offer any editing services, so all editing needs to be done by you. However, simply stitching three videos together to create a panoramic shot won't qualify as a backlot. Backlots are shot as panoramas.
