Drone Footage Shots 2016

Top 25 Most Awe-Inspiring Drone Footage Shots of 2016

There is a photographic revolution happening in the skies above us. Aerial footage that would have once cost thousands of dollars to capture can now be shot more affordably than ever. Similar to the camera or the lighting rig, drones have become invaluable tools for videographers and photographers alike, allowing for perspectives that required a helicopter or crane in the past.

By opening the capabilities of flight to a whole new class of independent filmmakers, drones are perfect for shooting video of majestic landscapes and man-made wonders. Not surprisingly, it’s for this reason that these devices have made a huge impact on the stock footage industry. Videographers are no longer limited by height or by axis; they can move their camera as fast as they want, in any direction they want, creating dynamic establishing shots that dramatically enhance their projects.

To meet the ever-growing desire for high-quality drone footage in the creative community, we are continuously expanding our collection of cinematic-grade aerial clips in our membership library–plus, our contributors are also constantly uploading new, exciting aerial footage to our Marketplace.

    I’m very excited to use these in my Vlog videos. I noticed Casey Neistat (YouTube) using drone footage with his title instead of having an opening / title clip.

    I recently started doing the same, but using videoblocks footage that fits the Vlog theme. It is a lot cheaper than buying a drone and a lot less work.

    Thanks, Videoblocks! You guys rock.

    These clips are a real help to YouTube film makers. We travel a lot and shoot a lot of our own videos but as every film maker can tell, there are those shots that you don’t have and wish you had them. This is the reason, I love this community.

    I will be sharing a lot of our drone clips as well this year. If you are fellow youtuber, please give us a sub and we will return the favor. Let’s support each other friends.
