My editing computer is chock full of royalty free images, backgrounds and music. Since I edit a lot, I keep a good supply right at my fingertips.
This makes it so much easier when I sit down to edit. I do not want to have to go hunt that stuff down; I prefer to have it readily available.
So when I see a great deal like FREE STOCK FOOTAGE, I grab it even if I have no immediate use for it. I know I will need it in the future and I like to be well stocked.
One of my favorite places to get royalty free images, Footage Firm, is giving away ten discs worth of royalty free video. Click that link to check out their selection. You have to pay $8.41 shipping per disc, but it is still an incredible bargain. That is NOT an affiliate link. I have no affiliate relationship with them; I recommend them because they offer great stuff at good prices.
Over the past year, I have gotten lots of stuff from Footage Firm as they give away a new collection every few months. So I encourage you to sign up with them even if you do not buy anything so you can be notified of all their giveaways. Of course I will keep you posted too.
This time, they have video discs of U.S. cities, tropical paradise, oceans, scenic rural, four seasons, mountains, sky time lapse and European buildings or countryside.
Time to go claim yours so you can edit videos that look like they cost a fortune but didn’t!
