Thanks to resources like Unsplash, finding beautiful and authentic stock content is as easy as a quick keyword search. For brands in a pinch, good stock can help bring to life stunning creative ideas without the hassle, time, and cost of traditional production. It’s why brands as big as Apple and artists as small indie filmmakers consistently rely on it—utilizing stock is super efficient and the possibilities are endless (see below for ideas!).
Which is why we’re thrilled to expand our VidMob Stock Library offering with our new content partner, Unsplash. We are big fans of Unsplash, their talented community of professional photographers, and their artfully curated collections of emotive and powerful imagery. The best part? All Unsplash content is free to use in any of your VidMob projects.
IDEAS FOR USING UNSPLASH IN YOUR VIDMOB PROJECTS:
There are so many ways to bring motion to still imagery—with a little graphic massaging from a talented VidMob Creator, any asset can become compelling video content. Here are a few of our favorite ways to transform beautiful photos into even better video:
Isolating movement to a specific element in the visual, i.e. a steaming coffee cup, a running waterfall, or passing traffic. In a cinemagraph, the rest of the visual is still while the isolated element repeats movement on a loop, similar to a GIF.
Adding an animated effect, like writing in script or a butterfly that floats into and off the frame, allows for the still to feel like a backdrop to whatever animation you add on top.
3. Parallax Effect
Separating the foreground and the background of an image gives it a three-dimensional feel, adding depth. Combined with a zoom or pan effect, it makes the still come alive.
