Top Categories: Medical & Health


Healthcare is one of the most important categories in our industry. Gaining access to a medical facility, however, can be challenging. Try securing real doctors, dentists, or medical professionals for your shoots. See if you can get footage of doctor’s offices, surgery rooms, or senior centers. Shots of medical equipment (stethoscopes, thermometers, EKG machines), home checkups, pregnant women, or people sick in bed all fit well with this topic. Remember, in reality, rooms are lit, not people. In stock, there’s a tendency for filmmakers to overuse high keys to light an environment, especially in medical shoots.
