Stock footage is beneficial to filmmakers as it saves shooting new material. Let’s say a filmmaker in the US wants to make a video about “Places to visit in South Africa”, instead of flying to SA he can stitch together various stock footage of Table Mountain, Kruger National Park and other tourist attractions removing the need to pay travel and accommodation fees.

Business Model
This business involves filming, editing and uploading stock footage to marketplaces like VideoHive, where it will be made available for sale, and you will receive a commission everytimes someone purchases it.

What kind of footage sells well

The video you create has to be as generic as possible. A man walking through the park, a girl applying makeup both these have various applications. That is not to say you shouldn’t shoot famous landmarks or footage that travel agencies can use for holiday footage. Always think for use cases for the type of footage you want to create.
