Video Assets

Want to add some extra audio or video elements to your video project to add character and make your project look more professional? Then Creative Commons assets are for you! Unlike most audio and video files you find online, Creative Commons files are free and can be used for educational purposes without any pesky copyright issues. This is because the creators of these assets specifically chose to make their files open and available for use. Just be sure that the files you use are actually listed as Creative Commons!
