Similar to my top news sites article, today I have a list that I think will be helpful for you if you have interest in creating videos for your online business or your clients’.
While working on a project the other day, I wanted to use some B-roll (i.e. video of things I haven’t already filmed) so I put together a list for myself. Then I realised that someone else might want it…so here you go…royalty-free stock video sites!
If I’ve missed something obvious, please let me know in the comments because I love learning new things:
Top 26 Royalty Free Stock Video Websites
- Shutter Stock
- Stock Footage For Free
- iStock Photo
- Getty Images
- Pond 5
- Adobe Stock
- Video Hive
- Clip Canvas
- Video Blocks
- Life of vids
- Motion Elements
- Overflight Stock
- BeachFront B-roll
- Motion Places
- Fancy Footage Club (closed but you can still download)
- Amana Images (Japan)
- VJ Loops
The ones first in the list above are the more popular brands that I am aware of and have used or purchased from….but the other ones looked like they had a lot to offer so you should check them out as well. Obviously, i didn’t put every single one i found.
You can also search for these keywords related to free stock video:
- public domain stock footage
- royalty free stock footage free
- free stock footage no watermark
- royalty free HD stock footage
Well you get the idea…
“Video isn’t going away, people.” This is what i said back in 2013 when i originally wrote this article. In fact, I feel fairly confident when I say that video production designers will enjoy the (exact) same rise in prominence—in every way—that the web designers went through in the 90s. And as someone who *was* one of those designers, i’m trying as hard as I can to jump the tracks to something new and exciting. Don’t worry, i’m still doing web design.
I hope you found this list useful. Please leave a comment if you are also focusing your business on video marketing and/or have any questions.
