Background on video templates
For decades, moving pictures were exclusively filmed on physical film, meaning that editing was done by literally cutting, splicing, and taping together bits of celluloid. With the advent of digital video in the 1950s and 1960s, video editing transformed completely. Non-linear video editing, in which editors are able to change any part of a video, was introduced in the 1970s and is still the way we edit today.
While more advanced and professional video editing software can be a bit pricy, it is still relatively accessible compared to the cost of filming and editing on film. And that’s not to mention the totally free video editing applications we can all access on our phones and computers.
With free video editing templates like ours, as well as other free assets such as stock footage, stock music, and free sound effects, creators at all levels have an unprecedented ability to create professional-level video and film projects, representing an exciting democratization of creativity that Createlist.io is proud to be a part of.
