    God these sites suck! Have to shoot the footage myself. And shutterstock, istock, ridiculous!!! Prices are crazy!!!

    • http://www.partnersinrhyme.com admin

      Wow, such anger at people who are simply creating websites to give their video content away for free.
      It’s unfortunate that simply because these free websites didn’t have exactly what you need for your specific project that it would make you so angry.
      And the fact that you don’t have the money for the content you need for your project shouldn’t make you angry at others either, maybe look at yourself for that eh?

  • Ale

    And why not try slow-motion sequences? Beautiful and with emotional impact! But not the fake ones created with Adobe or similar softwares.. Real slow motion, I mean, with cameras recording at 2000 images per second.. And just with a little contribute! Just have a look here: http://www.timetrapvideo.com

  • East2west

    None of your links offer anything for free – they are are scamming money grabbers – please rewrite this misleading article.

    • http://www.partnersinrhyme.com/ Partners In Rhyme

      Hi East2West-
      I’ve cleaned up, deleted, added and modified many of the links. They definitely weren’t all “money-grabbers” as you put it, especially not our site at Partners In Rhyme.
      Anyway, I think you will find the list much more useful now. Let me know what you think.
      Regards,
      Mark Lewis

    DVArchive.com should be on this list.

    • http://www.partnersinrhyme.com admin

      This is list is for *free* stock video footage. I don’t see free footage anywhere on the site you mentioned.

      • http://www.youtube.com/rehdogg Reh Dogg

        I agree you should take him off the list.

        • East2west

          Money scammer – there is nothing free there or anywhere on thgis or the listed websites…. better research needed or give up messing around on the internet.

          • http://www.partnersinrhyme.com/ Partners In Rhyme

            Easy there East2West, there are plenty of links that work and actually give lots of quality video content for free. You really need to relax instead of attacking everybody.

      Hello,

      I am interested in your free footage archive website, can I have more info.

      • http://www.footagecrate.com Chris (FootageCrate.com)

        The website is http://www.FootageCrate.com, hope you find something useful! It is updated regularly

        • East2west

          Why use MOV? Most useless movie format ever. Also your camera shakes and your stock is pretty unusable for anything – Nice idea but a long way from useful.

          • http://www.partnersinrhyme.com/ Partners In Rhyme

            I would have to argue your point that .MOV is the most useless movie format ever since it is one of the most prevalent on the internet.
            I think you forgot to take your anti-grumpy medication this morning.
