1 Free Stock Footage Clip Needs to Focus More

I've been hoping to post a few more abstract clips for people to use as backgrounds in their work.  The somewhat unique thing about this clip is that it is ACTUAL footage ... no After Effects here.  These are from 2 sets of outdoor string lights I bought on clearance from the hardware store bunched together.  The lights are supposed to mimic fireflies.  I put my camera lens a few inches away and set the focus to infinity.  The result is a beautiful, natural bokeh background. The color is true to what the light produced, but you are more than welcome to tint it in your NLE to match your project's asthetic.

You can preview and download the clips by clicking "read more" below.  Happy Downloading!

These videos were shot using the Sony NEX-FS700 and a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens
