Who would have thought that video would be such a big part of our lives in the twenty first century? YouTube changed everything of course, but so did the massive growth of cheap high resolution video cameras and smartphones with their amazing video quality. The result is that more and more people are trying their hand at producing video, clips, documentaries, music videos…you name it.
But one thing that can make a difference between an amateur looking result and more professional is the use of B-roll clips, the sort of footage which you see in newscasts on television to help tell the story. Traditionally it’s been very expensive to license such material, until now that is.
StockFootageForFree is a new site which offers hundreds of clips of free video footage for download in a range of genres. Nature, slow motion, sports, there’s something for everyone if you’re prepared to look. The site offers standard and high definition video, and also offers free DVDs which contain collections of royalty free video, sound effects and music for just the cost of shipping and handling.
