Top 5 Amazing Uses for Royalty Free Footage

By Bret Hodge

Royalty free footage and stock video footage gives producers an affordable way to incorporate professionally shot clips into movies, commercials, websites and other video projects. Stock video clips are frequently used by producers and editors to simplify projects and the transition can be so seamless that you don’t even realize that you’ve just seen royalty free footage clips.

Is finding these clips hard to do? You may be surprised by the answer.

Here is a list of ways stock video clips can be used:

1. High definition video clips are often used to demonstrate the abilities of electronics from phones to HD televisions

2. Video that is played within a movie or TV show – for example on a television screen in the background – can be easily produced with royalty free clips

3. Royalty free video and news clips are a great way to establish a time period or location within a movie

4. Add excitement or a certain emotion by incorporating stock video clips into your production or presentation

5. Royalty free clips are often used in documentaries when there is a gap in the scenery or a specific shot is needed that could not be gotten

The next time you are watching a movie, pay attention to the credits. Can you spot the royalty free clips or stock footage library being mentioned? It might surprise you to find your favorite explosion or nature scene was not original to the movie. The best news? It is easy to do and there is no reason for you not to utilize these clips to make your own production stand out from the rest.

When you start putting together a video project, whether you’re working on a presentation, TV show, movie or commercial, do some preliminary analysis to see how much of your video needs can be solved with royalty free stock video footage. Taking advantage of these resources can significantly cut down production time since the need to edit is negligible. And if you’re using royalty free clips, that cuts your costs as well. You may be pleasantly surprised at how much time and money you can save.

Bret Hodge enjoys finishing a project. The end result, however, isn’t always up to snuff. Using royalty free footage from film libraries, such as Thought Equity Motion help to cut his cost without hindering his vision.
