How to Keep the Bucks Rolling with Filmmaking

The ongoing battle for independent filmmakers everywhere is trying to find cash for the next film. And in an ever competitive industry, finding work can be difficult. That’s where youtuber, Maxwell Ridgeway has you covered!

Have you ever shot random b-roll of cars driving in the city, a horse in a field, or someone cooking? All of that unused footage can be uploaded to sites like Pond5, Shutterstock, and Adobe Stock and be sold to other filmmakers!

With copyright restrictions being a constant antagonist for online creatives, we NEED new footage that has no royalties! With the need being high, the opportunities for selling stock footage is endless.

“If you own a camera… you should be uploading stock footage.” – Maxwell Ridgeway

Get creative with your camera this weekend, upload some stock footage, check out Ridgeway’s video, and watch the cash roll in!
