Stock Video Footage For The Classroom

Whenever I am out in the city or travelling, I try to make a point of shooting some stock video footage for the classroom.  For teachers who employ video production as a way for students to engage new concepts and demonstrate understanding in the classroom, the use of stock and prerecorded media can help enhance the final product and streamline the creative process.  Below are some clips that students (as well as teachers) can use as an establishing shot or even as a background for chroma key work.  You can never have too many of these on hand.  Stay tuned as I hope to add more media in future posts.

CLICK on the links below to download these clips…

(NOTE: These clips do not have sound.  Students will have to add that in themselves!)

  1. CITY STREET (at night)

    Stock footage of venues, buildings, exteriors and interiors can help set up or establish a sequence or scene.

Can I Use These Clips in iMovie for iOS?

TIP: If you download these clips and then upload them into your own Google Drive, you can retrieve them on your iOS device by going to your Google Drive app, selecting the clip and then opening up the options under information or ‘i’ button.  You should then be able to see the option to ‘Open In’.  Once you have selected, it will eventually open up a list of apps that you can use.  Find and select the iMovie app.  I did notice that it may not take the first time, so try it again if the clip does not successfully appear in iMovie.  Good luck!

  1. Hey Kenji,

    Thanks so much for the stock video footage. It is very useful. I appreciate that some of the stock footage I recognize such as the West Coast Express and various Translink bus lines.

    Cheers,
    Kelvin
