Do a Google search for nature videos or whatever other topic interests
you. You may need special viewers to see them like Real Player or
Quick Time if you don't have them already installed on your system.
While some are "free" most aren't and if they are free the quality
usually isn't that good.
You can BUY tons of quality images and short vids royality free on any
topic you can think of, cost varies widely and also depends on how you
intend to use the work. I don't think you really want me to give you a
lengthy response on copyright laws or all the crap involved to get the
necessary permissions you need to use other people's work even for
your own casual use, but that's the area you're approaching.
Another approach is search for stock photos or videos. Many big
companies involved in that area. These are not cheap. If you except
quality nobody is going to give their work away.
One such example:
Another approach and way cheaper is look into video backgrounds. There
are mostly animations you can use as introductions or background, even
transitions and are sometimes sold as packages so for the price of one
"professional" short vid, you may pick up a few dozen animations, some
of which are very well done.
