Free Stock Footage Update: New York City

Category: Free stock footage News, HD Stock Footage

We’re back with another update to the Videvo library and this time it’s a big one – the Big Apple to be precise. Yes, it’s New York City. We’re delighted to offer 134 brand new clips of the city that never sleeps, shot in a variety of locations by our dedicated cameraman and filmmaker, Maarten Roos. Here are a selection of some of our favourites!

These free stock clips feature shots of famous landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn Bridge, the World Trade Centre, Wall Street, Times Square, and many more. Maarten did a fantastic job of capturing the key landmarks that have become icons in their own right. Additionally, there are a number of clips that capture the atmosphere of the city, including traffic, people commuting, tourism and nighttime traffic shots.

All these clips were shot on a Panasonic GH4, which allowed Maarten to shoot in multiple locations in a discreet fashion, capturing shots of people and places that would usually be tricky with larger equipment.

We hope you enjoy this selection of clips from New York, and as ever we continue to update the Videvo library on a weekly basis, so be sure to check back for more updates.

Here at Videvo, we are happy to bring you over 20 new free stock footage clips featuring the gorgeous city of Paris, France. As usual, all of the clips are available for 1080p HD download and are royalty free. We hope that you enjoy this collection, and you can expect even more free stock footage clips of Paris, and additional beautiful cities, to come!


On-Location Shooting

All of our free Paris stock footage was shot courtesy of Maarten Roos, who dedicated days to seeking out Paris’ most famous and beautiful spots. Lucky for Maarten, film crews of less than 10 people do not require permits from the Paris Film Office, so he was able to capture all of his shots with ease. Being June, it was quite hot in Paris, but the sunshine (and stunning sunsets!) allowed for some great footage.

Thanks to Maarten, we can now offer you free stock video clips of the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Trimphe, Sacre-Coeur, and more. Maarten is an independent filmmaker who has also shot some awesome footage for us in Lisbon and Amsterdam, with more to come.


Key Paris Landmarks

This batch of free Paris stock footage was all shot on a Sony EXI, and although this camera is quite old now when compared with Sony’s latest range of cameras, it still has the ability to create some stunning images in full HD resolution, at near broadcast quality. Sony EX1s use three ½-inch TrueHD sensors to produce HD footage as well as being known for their excellent control over depth of field and notable low-light capabilities.

Additionally, Maarten was sure to make good use of his wide-angled lens adapter, a 16×9 inc. EXII 0.6x. This lens was crucial in order for him to capture Paris’ large landmarks in their entirety. We know that those seeking stock clips often require wide shots of important landscapes or features in a city, so we were sure that your free stock footage of Notre Dame, the River Seine, and more all contained the views and angles you most likely wanted.


Subtle Color Grading

With the exception of a few minor adjustments, most of our clips consist of images straight out of the camera. It may be hard to believe that the above still frame is raw material with hardly any editing, but these free video clips are meant to show off Paris’ natural beauty all on their own.

Most importantly, we know that many users choose to add their own unique looks to stock clips in post-production, so our free footage contains minimal color correction to maintain the desired natural appearance.

Free Stock Footage – Why Videvo.net is a great educational resource

Category: Blog, Uncategorized, Videvo News

Now I disliked school as much as the next person (even though media was probably one of my better subjects), but one thing we’ve noticed since we launched Videvo almost a year ago, is the large number of people using the site as an educational resource. Stock footage is a fantastic tool for learning – it gives students the power to experiment and learn without the need of going and shooting the footage themselves (although I would recommend any fledging media student to learn to shoot as well as edit). For teachers, it’s a great timesaver — you can simply download clips from various sites to use as demonstration clips for editing, colour correcting, image stabilisation, track matte editing and so on. But wait! Isn’t that expensive after a while? You need a variety of clips, but those clips cost money, and it’s usually not cheap either; I doubt your students are going to help you out with that cost.

 

This is where Videvo.net comes into its own. It gives you the option to access more than 1200 video clips, all royalty free, and completely free.

What’s more, you can access these clips at the click of the button — there’s no complicated subscription plan, which means your students can access the site instantly and download the required clips. This can all be done anywhere with an internet connection, which makes it possible to set students homework based around editing and post-production, with a vast resource at their fingertips.

We’re committed to adding more clips every day, and as the stock library grows the more useful it will become for many people. The key challenge we face is getting the word out there that this kind of resource exists! So if you are a teacher (or anyone else for that matter) and you enjoy the site, be sure to tell your friends about us and our library of free stock footage! /Shameless plug.

And as always you can contact us with any comments and suggestions for the site. We write back to everyone who contacts us, so come and say hi.

Speak again soon,

Tom
