Creating clips that can stand alone, as in this slow motion wine pour clip, may be important for motion stock success in the coming years.
Recently I participated in an exchange, in a stock photo forum, on the topic of motion stock. It was only a brief exchange but there were some great thoughts that have helped me gain a bit more clarity on the possibilities, and limitations, of motion stock and how stock footage may fit into my photography future.
Incredible Images, After Effects and Motion Efforts
A concept stock photographer that is currently doing some of the most incredible images I have seen is now using After Effects to create stand alone conceptual clips the echo his still style. These are beautiful and powerful clips and it is hard to not get excited about the possibilities for such motion efforts when watching them. That gives me further impetus to examine such a route for my own future.
