Joel Holland
Founder and CEO
Video Blocks

In an increasingly digital world, the need to express oneself digitally — and creatively — increases. But while creativity abounds in the mind of an entrepreneur, most organizations and individuals still use stock video for their digital projects.

Joel Holland, Founder and CEO of Video Blocks, recognized that stock video footage is typically expensive to license. But he believed cost shouldn’t put the kibosh on creativity and licensing shouldn’t limit expression. His solution: a subscription-based service, offering unlimited downloads of royalty-free stock audio and video clips.

Video Blocks is the low-cost, high-quality alternative to major industry players. Its subscription model has opened the industry to a broader group. The caliber of its clips is strong enough for major networks yet affordable enough for hobbyists. Today, thousands of organizations and individuals use Video Blocks to produce higher-quality videos and presentations.
