If you are looking for some free media resources to add into your film projects. You should take the time to browse these
three four sites for a large amount of media available to you (at no charge) .
Please check the licensing for your specific project but I think the vast majority of the content is free for non-commercial projects.
- Filmstro – Download static versions of all our royalty-free music tracks for FREE. YouTube cleared. Explore the library and start creating!
- BBC Sound Effects – The Sound Effects are BBC copyright, but they may be used for personal, educational or research purposes, as detailed in the license.
- Sound Image – Free Music, Sound Effects and Images for Your Projects by Eric Matyas.
- Premium Beats – Download free quality assets and elements for video production and film making.
I am really new to film editing / making world but I have remained stunned at the amount of free or very low cost assets available to aspiring film makers. The amount of quality examples, samples and tutorials that you can find on You Tube and other sites is simply astounding. So far the most expensive part of this hobby has been the camera I bought. Everything else has been free or came in at a low cost to me. And speaking of quality tutorials it is hard (maybe impossible) to beat FxHome’s comprehensive list of tutorials for their Hitfilm Express or Pro video editing suite, which includes getting started videos all the up to putting Hollywood level special effects into your own videos.
I will update this post if I find anymore and if you know of any that I don’t have please add them to the comments below.
