In order to download the stock footage from the Free Stuff pages, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the big Detonation Films logo.
A popup will come up with some information and a preview video for the the selected stock footage pack. To proceed to your download, click on the 'I want this!' button.
A new popup asking you for your details and a price will appear. Wait what? It's not free?!
