Common Questions about Selling and Buying Stock Video Footage Selling stock video elements is common practice these days. Many film enthusiasts and professional videographers use stock video footage to improve their project and add a level of dynamism to the overall output. They usually visit online libraries of stock elements like Motion Elements (ME) to get the clips they need. Contributing videographers, in turn, earn residual income from their footage. There are some, though, that are not fully aware of how buying and selling stock footage really works. Here are some frequently asked questions answered: What is Stock Footage? A stock footage is commonly a short clip intended for a video project but was edited out in the production process. It can be anything—a time-lapse or animated mattes, for instance. There is a market for high definition video and other simpler material Making the clip available does not mean the artist is putting it up for sale per se. The creator is just selling the rights to use the clip, to interested buyers.

What Does Royalty-Free License Mean? For the original clip owner, the royalty-free license refers to the copyright ownership parameters. The license states that the creator still owns the clip and that the clip can be sold to more than one buyer. The buying party, on the other hand, only needs to secure the purchase once. They can use the clip multiple occasions. Do All Content Suppliers Have the Same Policies? Not all content suppliers have the same policies regarding stock footage. Motion Elements, for instance, offers the option of taking a clip off its library if the creator so requests. This is why stock footage sellers should read the guidelines carefully before selling their work. Selling and buying stock footage have their own benefits. With reliable content suppliers like ME ready to lend a hand, it is easy to start building a portfolio and add to creative options.
