addition to the Eezy Network....VIDEEZY

 Link to the Videezy site
Today I'm excited to announce the official launch of the 3rd site to the Eezy network!Videezy is a community for video editors to download high quality free HD stock video footage quickly and easily. It is also a place to share your free cutaways, b-roll, backgrounds, effects, motion graphics, and any other types of HD clips you would like others to use.


I'm sure this will come in handy considering how many millions of videos are out there now and making it easy to share is key.
