For the past few years I have been using the same intro for almost every video...that has officially changed now that Todd whipped together what I think is the best video intro we have ever had. If you have’t seen it yet, it’s posted in the video above.
Recently I put out CES coverage people were asking how did we have time to film all those amazing Vegas strip videos? The simple answer is we didn’t film them, we used a site called VideoBlocks to get royalty FREE clips to cut in with the footage we did film. I have been a paying subscriber to VideoBlocks for a year now ever since Todd Wolfe recommended checking them out.
To be 100% transparent I reached out to VideoBlocks to see if we could team up to offer you as a Fro Reader a 7-day FREE trial membership followed by a special discounted price for the year. Like I have said many times before, I only work with companies who’s products I personally use. I have been a paying VideoBlocks customer for over a year and Todd has been one for almost three.
If you are not familiar with VideoBlocks or why you might want to check them out it’s simple:
VideoBlocks is a premium archive of over 115,000 royalty free movie and studio quality background loops, video clips, video temples, special effects and more. As I and so many others venture into DSLR video and editing I find myself always looking for extra little clips to cut in. VideoBlocks has pretty much all the clips I need and they are royalty free which means you can use them for ANYTHING from YouTube to movies to TV shows and even commercials.
Check out how Todd used their clips to make the new RAWtalk Intro and if you think it’s something that may be effective for you go to http://VideoBlocks.com/go/fro to get your 7 day FREE Trial.
With this trial you have to enter your credit card info upfront but, I have a workaround to get special FRO Pricing. This next thing may sound weird but trust me it’s going to save you a lot of money on your membership. If you want to continue with the service cancel your membership before the 7 day trail is over. VideoBlocks will send you an e mail offering you the service at only $99 for the year, not $79 a month, simply sign back up with that offer and you are ready to go.
VideoBlocks has more than paid for itself over the last year for Todd, Stephen and I. Having a repository for so many royalty FREE clips has enabled us to take the quality of our videos to a new level. Give the trial a shot, I think once you use one clip you will see how the service will pay for itself.
