Tips on selecting and customizing free stock footage
Shift from literal to aspirational.Before starting to look for a perfect stock video clip, take some time to think about the type of imagery that inspires your audience. Pivot from a literal to an aspirational approach to find content that evokes the right feeling about your brand while keeping people’s attention.
Be exact in your search.When you search for free stock footage, try to be as exact as possible in your search. This might yield fewer results than casting a wider net. However, the video clips and images that you find will be more relevant to what you are looking for.
Use the power of allegory and metaphor.If you’re looking for stock video clips that show universal concepts like love or peace, you can think allegorically and conduct a search for “hearts” and “doves” respectively. On the other hand, metaphors are useful for concretizing abstract ideas.
Look for clips in the same video series.If you’ve found a video clip you like, it’s a good idea to look to explore the portfolio of the videographer who created it. Using stock footage from the same shooting can help you tell a coherent story.
Start with inspiration.It might be difficult to start searching for a stock video or image with a blank search field in front of you. Instead, look for inspiration on YouTube or elsewhere. Also, many creative platforms have ready-made templates to help users overcome the Blank Canvas Syndrome.
