If you’re working on a motion graphics project for a business, you may well need access to a good variety of corporate video footage that you can use to incorporate into your project. This is where stock video footage can be a huge asset in saving you both time and money.
There are thousands of great corporate and business stock videos to be found at VideoHive, but today I’ll be highlighting the 20 best.
All the video footage is royalty-free and can be purchased either with a single-use licence which lets you use your chosen stock footage in one end product or with a multi-use licence which lets you use the footage in an unlimited number of end products for different clients if you choose.
Hi-Tech Business Women features two young female executives, viewing a digital tablet together in an office corridor and having a discussion.
The footage would be very useful for motion graphics projects that want to emphasise teamwork and partnership or the use of modern technologies in the business environment.
If you’re looking for footage of a executive analysing business data, Examining Market Trends may be useful.
The video shows a close-up of a report containing a number of charts which the businessman is examining carefully.
Video Conference features a panning shot of a diverse business team sitting at a conference table in a meeting room having a video conference with a female executive who is shown on a huge television screen.
A great opening shot for any corporate motion graphics project, Clouds Over The Glass Building is a low vantage point shot of a tall elegant glass building.
Puffy white clouds moving quickly across the blue sky in the background are reflected on the building’s surface and add a dynamism to the video.
Business Greeting video footage brings a bit of variety and interest to the traditional business handshake footage. The video shows two businessmen silhouetted against the light in a glass and steel building.
The men move towards each other in slow motion before they eventually meet, shake hands and have a short chat before one man, using a hand gesture, invites the other to continue their meeting elsewhere.
Female Leader is a great video to highlight female leadership and participation in a business as it illustrates a female boss holding a business meeting with her colleagues, half of whom are female and the other half male.
Working at Computer offers a side view of a male’s hands on keyboard. He occasionally shifts his hands to another keypad to his left. This clip makes creative use of depth and perspective blur.
Business People in Front of Computer shows a team of one woman and two men clustered around a computer having a discussion about a presentation.
A great video for showing team work and camaraderie.
This aptly named footage Mobile Communication opens with a young businesswoman walking into an open plan area of a corporation while chatting on her mobile phone. She walks to the window and looks out while completing her call and then turns and walks off the screen again.
This footage would be great in motion graphics projects dealing with mobile phones or communication.
Airbus In The Sky, which shows a huge plane flying in the sky against a background of clouds and sun light, is footage which would come in handy for projects that want to emphasis the international reach of a business.
Stock Market Data offers a close-up shot of the face of a young executive as he looks attentively at a computer screen with stock exchange data reflected in his glass lenses.
The video moves around him as he analyses the financial information on his screen and adjusts the data. This is great footage for themes connected with banking, stock exchange, analytics, business and general office work.
Signing of Contract, as its name suggests, is video footage of two executives presenting documents to a client to be signed.
The client signs the documents and then shakes the hand of each executive in turn.
Businessman Travel With Train is great footage for any project dealing with working away from the office, travelling comfortably, or communication.
The video shows a businessman sitting comfortably by the window of a train, working on his mobile tablet while the countryside whizzes by outside the window.
Coworking in the Office is a time-lapse video showing a top-down view of the hands of business colleagues sitting at a table, typing on their laptops, working with documents and drinking coffee.
This flat-lay style approach is a very contemporary spin on the more typical approach to illustrating team work and would work well for projects targeting startups or businesses working in creative industries.
Feeling frustration and stress is definitely part of business life and the Frustration footage captures that well with its illustration of a businessman sitting in front of a laptop in an empty office, seemingly trying to resolve an issue and failing.
He shows his stress by rubbing his temples and his brow and covering his eyes.
16. Precision Work
