Article D5: Stock Video Footage, and how Designers can use it

For up and coming creators, it can be hard to shoot a commercial, you have to get a fancy camera, you need to find a location, you need need to get a crew together, it is very much an expensive investment. Since you would need to watch your budget, you can get stock footage from great websites like Adobe Dot com. Today I will tell you how good all the stock footage websites are, and how designers use it.

Here is were I found most of these sites and quoted from.

Adobe.com

49 for every video clip

This is the premiere place to get the best and most high quality stock footage for your projects, it is very easy to use this website as well. There are also forums to help you out if you don.t know how to use those the footage, they can give you some ideas

Story Blocks

16.58 per month.

‘Story Blocks offers more than 100,000 royalty free stock videos. Once you download a file it is yours to keep and use forever, royalty-free, even if you change your subscription or cancel your account.

In addtion to this Storyblocks also offers another stock media library called the Marketplace. This is where customers can purchase clips directly from contributors.

This provides more options for video editors if they can’t find what they’re looking for in the unlimited library. They can head over to the Marketplace to find more content at a discounted price.’

Artgrid

Price; 25 per month.

Artgrid’s yearly subscription is very attractive, giving full access to their catalogue, unlimited downloads and a license that covers use on any platform. To top it off, any clip you download with an active subscription is yours forever to reuse. We now get 2 months free with all subscriptions!

With 3 pricing plans, there’s something for all types of creators – JuniorCreator and Pro. Each of them differ in the resolution and format of the footage available to download with full access to the entire catalogue.

Pro subscribers get access to ungraded Raw and LOG files, which give filmmakers amazing flexibility. When it comes to resolution, most of the footage comes in 4k, while 8K is also available.

VideoHive

Only 10 dollars!

The royalty free footage on VideoHive is very affordable. So it’s a great site if you just want to dip your toe into stock video or grab a quick clip for a beginner project.

But as with many sites, the quality does suffer slightly at a lower price point, so be careful what you spend your credits on.

iStock

60 is average buying price.

iStock was originally known as iStockPhoto, but then re branded to account for the diverse range of content on the site. Video editors, bloggers, brands and filmmakers flock to site to obtain quality stock videos.

iStock is one of the least expensive stock video sites on our list and has some relatively flexible payment options.

What is a Creative Commons License?

Creative Commons (CC) is an internationally active non-profit organisation that provides free licences for creators to use when making their work available to the public. These licences help the creator to give permission for others to use the work in advance under certain conditions.”

I could definitely produce stock footage for some sort of job, just a few though.
