Title: Footage with sound or without
Post by: Stockmaan on August 09, 2018, 04:40
I have questions about footages. I upload footages which are without any sound. I make especially nature footages so I'm wondering how to sell footages that have sound? I think that sells better.

Thanks for any advice!

I think no sound is better than poor sound, but relevant and well recorded sound is even better.

So...
- On-camera internal mic is barely acceptable if you're lucky, or not acceptable at all in many cases;
- External mic is good enough for stock if used properly (and fast and easy);
- Separate digital audio recorder is great (but requires a bit more work to replace audio in footage).

No you can upload with audio if it adds to the footage

I hardly ever submit videos with sound. I don't have a good quality external mic / audio recorder anyway. So I don't have much choice but to submit silent videos.

By the way, if you want to be grammatically correct in your written text, 'footage' is an uncountable noun. Therefore, there is no such word as 'footages.' You can use the word 'videos' or 'clips' instead for the plural.

Sorry - I'm training to be a teacher in TESOL - that's why the mini grammar lesson slipped out.
