Depending on your project, you may need a couple of different types of city stock video. They’re both fully stocked here.
First, you may need shots of a particular location to establish where the video is taking place. For example, if you’re interviewing someone from Chicago, it can be very effective to cut away to a panorama of the Chicago skyline. Or some footage of pedestrians strolling through Barcelona is a perfect backdrop to a video set in that city.
Or you may need some generic town stock footage—in other words, stock video of general urban scenes, without including landmark buildings or famous views. This type of city stock video is ideal for communicating the idea of an urban space without tying it to a particular city or country.
With more than 5,000 pieces of city stock footage to choose from, you’ll have no trouble finding exactly what you need here. You’ll find everything from sweeping panoramic shots of famous skylines to beautifully shot footage of abstract urban details.
If you prefer to create your own town stock footage, you’ll probably need a high-quality drone and a course like “Cinematic Drone Video Production.” But if you want to save yourself a huge amount of time so that you can focus on other aspects of your video production instead, your best option is to download some of this professional city stock footage.
