NatureFootage allows you to make detailed searches to quickly find the exact shot you need. You can perform a Keyword Search and use the Search Filter to fine-tune your results.
Here is a short video demonstrating searching on Nature Footage. It also shows several ways of sharing your search results.
Keyword Search is the quickest way to search for the footage you need. From the Search Toolbar on the top of every page, enter keywords in the text box, and click ‘Search.'
By default, multiple word keyword searches finds only results that includes ALL of the keywords you enter into the search bar.
To widen the search, use ‘OR’ (all caps) before each keyword you would like to include in your search. For example, a keyword search for lake OR pond OR river will find clips containing lakes, ponds, or rivers.
To narrow a search, use ‘NOT’ (all caps) before each keyword you would like to exclude from your search. For example, a keyword search for whale NOT shark NOT killer will find whales, but exclude whale sharks and killer whales.
To do an exact search use quotations “ “. A search for “whale shark” will find clips only with the exact phrase whale shark.
SEARCH WITHIN RESULTS
From the Search Results page, you can use the ‘Search Within Results’ field to search within your current found results. For example, using ‘Search Within Results’ you can add a new keyword to limit your current search results.
If you don't find what you're specifically looking for, we recommend also searching more generic or broader search terms as well. We also offer Free Research if you need additional assistance.
