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.
