February is the month for love, and in the filmmaking world this means only one thing: box offices are filling up with romantic films for the season. While dramas like Fifty Shades Darker or The Notebook are fine for some, romantic comedies have a more universal appeal. Just remember all of the romcoms that are a part of everyday pop-culture: When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, The Wedding Singer, Pretty in Pink, (500) Days of Summer—the list goes on.
But the power of the romcom isn’t limited to the big screen. Indie filmmakers, advertisers, marketers, and most visual storytellers know that these cute love stories are effective vehicles for selling their products or getting their messages across. With its wide appeal and lighthearted, optimistic nature, the genre is perfect for cultivating warm, positive responses from audiences and potential customers. To help you harness some of this romcom magic, we’ve partnered with our sister sites, GraphicStock and AudioBlocks, to help you find all of the royalty-free After Effects templates, stock footage, music, and images you need for the perfect romantic short, advertisement, or Valentine’s Day promotion.
