Not all videos are considered the same, at least for filmmakers. Some footage are integral to a storyline, and others are what is often referred to as B-Rolls.
“In film and television production, B-roll, B roll, B-reel or B reel is supplemental or alternative footage intercut with the main shot. The term A-roll referring to the main footage has fallen out of use.”Wikipedia
B-Rolls help the main story stand and provide more context in telling an all-round engaging story.
For years, stock footage websites have been serving the filmakers, content creators community well with almost any possible B-Roll footage one can think of.
Shutterstock and Adobe stock, as well as drone specific ones, such as Dronestock, all have made getting footage for use in various productions and edits easy, especially for independent filmmakers and in recent years, YouTubers.
In general, it can be difficult finding African-specific drone stock footage to use on the above mentioned websites. Is the reason because there isn’t enough demand for Africa-centric stock? Or there aren’t enough creators sharing their Africa related stock footage on such websites?
In any case, such collection isn’t abundant, and not always easy to find.
