Over the weekend stayed at a really nice resort in the mountains – off season so we saved a lot of money.so
One night we went to dinner at a restaurant which had some nice lighting and I took some video of my wife pouring some wine.
I wasn’t making a big production out of it, just thought it would be fun.
It reminded me of an IStock red wine video they had featured last week which was very similar, but it was also really expensive for the HD version.
That got me thinking of giving my video clips or broll away for free for people that can’t afford IStock’s high prices. Free royalty free b-roll if you will.
Both Vimeo and Flickr have ways to publish your video under creative commons and I would like to do that so anyone can use my videos as long as they provide me attribution for my work.
But I am not sure how to organize it, do I do a bunch of video clips of wine for instance, do I provide them in the flat picture setting?
Let me know your thoughts?
Also if this is a good idea, what clips would you like to see?

Tomorrow I will try and see if I can make this in to a short video of my pouring wine in to it. The image below is under creative commons share alike if you would like to use it, just provide me with attribution.
