List of websites with footage and media to practice
Hey everyone. Seeing how going out and filming can be a little challenging right now (or maybe you don't have anyone to film with like myself), I figured I'd put together a list of resources we can use to practice our mad l337 editing skills on. :)
I'll break this down into a couple of categories: Footage, Music, SFX, VFX
I'm looking at more than just a stock clip of a guy pointing at a screen here but for things like short scenes but some clips might not meet that requirement if they are interesting enough (JUST DO IT!!!!)
I would love it if larger studios would release the raw footage from projects that have come out of copyright protection for people to play with but that's never going to happen. :(
I'll start with the CineStudy Interactive Challenges page.
Essentially CineStudy has tons of full short films or sketches with all the captured media and a challenge or objective. This is great since the challenge usually aims to teach you a specific editing task in a system agnostic way.
One thing is that sometimes ... the footage has issues. Out of focus shots for example or for one project, they had one scene with "vfx" baked in instead of raw but still an awesome resource.
I don't bother listing them individually since they have quite a few projects (19 as of writing).
Some of my favorites up to date:
Next is FXHome itself. Many of their shorts on the HitFilm Express page have project files. Example:
Next is Hollywood Camera Work. They have two pages of green screen footage (thanks @NormanPCN) .
If you have a bit of money to throw at this. EditStock has a bunch of movies to edit but for a single user liscence it's like 50$ - 80$ Canadian.
Here are other random clips.
I'll add more later and as I find more.
