Top 10 Surrealist Videos: Stock Footage That Reimagines Creativity

“Sometimes I’d believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
—The Red Queen, Alice Through the Looking Glass

The everyday can be so boring—why not be extraordinary? Great storytelling doesn’t always have to be realistic. Some of the most memorable films of our time are built on the idea that reality isn’t always what it seems: The Matrix, Inception, not to mention Harry Potter. The world is full of fantastic—and maybe slightly weird—possibilities. For filmmakers, dabbling outside of the ordinary can be just what you need to unlock creative worlds.

To fire up your imagination, we’ve gathered our most inspiring, dreamlike, and surreal clips from our stock footage and motion backgrounds library, including Contributor Marketplace footage. So embrace the impossible with these 10 fantastical clips—and find out where your imagination will take you!

    You send me 10 clips, ONLY TWO are part of my membership, and for $50 I can have the others ??????? SERIOUSLY.

    If you are going to send me “leaders” make them leaders that I can use.

      Hi Andrew,

      Sorry for any confusion! The first 5 clips are all included with your membership and are free to download–they are part of the Membership Library as noted in the article. The last 5 clips are from the Contributor Marketplace, where 100% of sales go straight to the stock filmmaker and we don’t take a cut. There is no obligation to purchase from the Contributor Marketplace.

      Hope this info helps!

      Thank you for being a part of our community!
