    I just got my new Macbok with Final Cut Express HD. I am new to video editing but I would like to get in some practice before I work on my own videos (I don't have a DV cam yet, but soon:) ). My question is is there anywhere I can get free 5-10 min video clips, especially HD clips, to practice on for free?

    There are some on the Apple HD website that you possibly use. :)

    Best place to find that sort of stuff is http://www.archive.org

    loads of video footage in public domain that you can play with. You can actually do some really cool stuff with it, too. :)

    Pretty cool website, next time I'm bored during the summer I'll play with those clips.

    EditStock.com

    Go to www.EditStock.com to download footage from professional short films to practice editing with. We have a free sample too.
    The best part is that once you're done with your cut you can upload it back to the site and get feedback from a professional editor. You can use this footage on your reel by the way.
