Do you think this videographer had model releases for all every single person in this video? There must be around 20 people in this video.

I suppose it is possible the creator got a model release for every person in the video. Though is it also possible he didn't need a model release for any of those people because you can't see anyone face.

I'm mostly asking because I could get a shot like this next week.

I don't think they need a release as there's no recognizable person in the shot. All their heads are covered.
Branding on backpacks and clothes would be more of an issue if they're really big, and you wouldn't be able to get a release for these.

It's always a bit of a gamble with this type of shot as some agencies will reject it and some will approve it depending on the reviewer's mood.

Get the shot anyway, you've got nothing to lose. Worst case scenario you can submit it as editorial if it's rejected.

I'd say no - doesn't appear to have any recognizable faces/etc.
