Tell a captivating story with motion backgrounds
Stock animations, motion backgrounds, moving patterns - whatever you call them, our library has the perfect backdrop for your videos. Rather than showing a narrative like two people talking, our animated backgrounds are used to set an emotional tone in a more abstract way. In addition to their usage as background videos for YouTube, Instagram, and audio-based videos, they are also great for live performances. Our looping backgrounds are perfect for live worship events or visuals at EDM and VJ performances. Whatever your project, Storyblocks is here to help.Let's Go

Animated backgrounds are useful in many projects, especially in videos where audio is the primary feature. For example, lyric videos use moving backgrounds to display text on a visually interesting surface. Using greenscreen and alpha channel techniques, you can create some truly amazing sequences. You may also see these in explainer videos, voiceover sequences, and YouTube intros & outros. They are also used in video ads and commercials, TikTok videos and website backgrounds. When layered behind After Effects templates, you can create moving text that gets your message across with flair.
