Stock footage, and similarly, file footage, archival footage and royalty free stock footage are film or video footage that is not custom shot for use in a specific film or television program.
Stock footage is of great use to filmmakers as it is far cheaper than shooting a needed scene. Stock footage can also be used to integrate news footage or notable figures into a film. For instance, the Oscar Award-winning film Forrest Gump used stock footage extensively, modified with computer generated imagery to portray the lead character meeting historic figures such as John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Neil Armstrong and John Lennon.
Global Cuts delivers stock footage - film and video - stock photographs and royalty free music as downloadable QuickTime files. Include them in your productions using software such as After Effects, Avid, Combustion, Shake, Inferno, Flame or Final Cut Pro.
