Free stock footage site just opened for personal and commercial video productions.
As we’ve mentioned in the past, business videos get a real deal if they can use free stock footage rather than pay for a crew to shoot it new. Many times you can practically get away without shooting a specific scene to underscore your point. This cutaway (or B-roll) footage can just convey the “feeling” for what is being said rather than specifically illustrating your point.
Here is an example of one of our videos that includes stock footage:
Rather than shoot any of this footage, the video is created entirely from live action and animated stock footage.
New we see that there is a new company that is giving away stock footage for free. We’ve yet to see what the catch is, so we suggest you take advantage of the source while it is still free. The license information indicates that you can download the footage for free and use it personally or commercially.
Because the video portion of the site is new, there is not an excess of free stock footage, at least as pertains to video.
However, the site has had free photos available for awhile, and there are lots of free stock photos there.
So use Pexels for stock footage if you find something to your liking — you can’t beat the price. It is free stock footage, after all.
