Stock video footage

Are you tired of paying an arm and a leg just to get your hands on some attractive and effective videos? Well, have no fear because stock footage is here to save the day! 

With so many social media and video-sharing platforms out there, it’s important to make visually appealing and engaging videos, and stock footage can help you do just that. With carefully selected stock video clips, a creative idea and proper editing, you can get a great video.

What is it and Why Should You Care?

So, what exactly is stock video? It’s pre-recorded footage that can be used in a variety of video production projects, like commercials, presentations, and brand videos. It’s basically a database of generic footage that fits a wide range of styles. 

You can find them on sites like Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, iStock and Pond5. This footage is shot by professional videographers and can be easily selected and purchased with the necessary licenses. Now, let’s get to the juicy benefits of using stock video.

Cost-Effectiveness: Save Money, Get Rich

Why spend a fortune on original footage when you can access high-quality stock footage at a fraction of the cost? Shooting original footage can be time-consuming and expensive, especially if you need a large crew. But with stock footage, you can get access to all kinds of footage on the internet without breaking the bank. 


Since we have access to a huge stock video library, we can find the perfect footage for your project in no time. You don’t have to worry about whether the shooting location suits you, whether the crew or equipment is good enough and so on. We can also preview the footage before purchasing, ensuring you get exactly what you need for your project. It’s like a video shortcut that gives you more time for other important things.

Access to a Wide Range of Footage: From Landscapes to Zombies

Stock footage libraries offer a wide range of footage, from landscapes to business scenes to people in various situations. We can find footage from different locations, perspectives, and styles, even industry-specific video content like medical or military footage. The possibilities are endless, from serious to silly, from corporate to creative. 

High-Quality Footage: Make Your Video Look Like a Million Bucks

Stock footage is usually shot by professional videographers using high-quality equipment. This means that your video can look polished and professional, even if you’re on a tight budget. You can create a sense of continuity and cohesion in your project, making it more engaging and impactful. 

How we Choose the Right Stock Footage: Like a Kid in a Candy Store

Before we start searching for stock footage, it’s important to know what we’re looking for. What type of footage do you need? What mood or tone do you want to convey? Answering these questions will help us find the right stock footage for your project. It’s like being a kid in a candy store, except with video clips. 

We always choose high-quality footage. We are looking for videos that are well lit, shot with a quality camera, and have harmonious colors and contrast. Stock videos come in different formats, such as Full HD, 4k, and even 8k resolutions.

It’s also important to choose a license that fits your needs, depending on where and how you’ll be showing your video. Some licenses allow us to use stock video clips in any video project without paying additional fees. Other licenses are limited, for example for TV broadcasting, meaning we can only use the stock footage for specific projects.
