Misc Video Footage for editing?


Recommended Posts

I'm hoping to tap the braintrust here...


I'm looking for a site (or sites) with public domain or even commercially available video footage for use in personal video editing. For example, I'm doing a project for school where I need a video of an explosion. I simply need footage of an explosion (real or rendered) to insert into my piece.


I know there are DVDs available with such material but I thought a website might be quicker.

This is a great source, but I'm not sure how well it will fit your needs. Very high-rez stuff is available for free (not sure about IP issues, but if your use is personal... :




There are a lot of great classics in there like those graphic driver's ed film from the old days, a film for girls on being popular and the sort of stuff you might remember being mocked on MST3K. There are recent films as well.
