Companies may not have budgets for live action videos and animated explainer videos may not be appropriate for the content they need to disseminate. In such cases, stock footage videos are a great option. Stock footage videos can be used to create awareness videos, explainer videos or even to educate and train. Stock footage can also be used in case you have a video with too many ‘talking heads’. In this case, you can cut away to stock footage to visually show what the talking head is referring to.
