Purchasing Videos/motion picture for Music Video

Postby csarami@ncsu.edu » Mon Aug 17, 2020 12:14 pm

Hi,

Can anyone recommend me to a site containing videos (motion pictures) to use for a music/song? Basically, I'd search with keywords, browse through and choose.

There are literally dozens and (while I've not used any but occasionally contributed footage to some) they seem pretty much the same more or less.

Be aware that you might be buying the footage, but actually using it may involve royalties and an explicit declaration by the actors. So check the licensing terms - you want royalty free footage with unlimited commercial use.

Just google "royalty free video" and you'll find.

Thank you guys! As @CS70 said also: https://www.shutterstock.com/ and https://www.istockphoto.com/

I was looking for a footage girlfriend playing with boyfriend's hair while he is sleeping. preferably his head on her lap!

I'll keep looking.
