#EarthDay: Stock Trailer - Beware of the Plastics

#EarthDay: Stock Trailer - Beware of the Plastics

Happy Earth Day everyone!

In celebration, here's the new video of my Stock Trailer series: Beware of the Plastics.

For those of you who don't know about Stock Trailer, it's an original concept I developed for my Youtube channel. The idea is simple, come up with a story (movie, documentary, ...) and create a fake trailer for this film, using tricks and clichés used for usual trailers of the same genre, using only stock footage.

Here, I made a fake trailer for a (not) upcoming documentary about plastic use, waste, pollution and the people's protests against it. All the footage I used come from Videvo, a great website providing free to use footage, sound effects, music and motion graphics. I already talked about Videvo in my Best free to use photo and video platforms to illustrate your content post. 

Switching from single-use plastic to reusable products is something I've been advocating for a while, and I saw while browsing Videvo that they had a bunch of footage on that topic, so I figured I could do something with it!

Without further ado, here's the final video:


Thanks for watching and let me know what you think!
