Our Cause


Footage of the world is an organization built to market the creative work of incredible video artists, to provide consumers of stock video the highest quality footage while strengthening the environment and improving the lives of people in need.

Footage of the World works for our artists by allowing them to focus on shooting incredible footage. We do all of the tedious post production, data preparation and monetization work: We edit, color correct, index, keyword, etc. We place our artists footage on our site and the world's best partner sites. We invest a lot of time in our contributors and therefore are VERY selective on who we work with. If you think you have what it takes, email us at info@footageoftheworld.com

Footage of the World.com is developed by traveling videographers. The founders believe that true joy can be achieved by experiencing this world in its simplest, least touched forms.

Keep gazing.
