I am working on some vfx for a live-action short and there a some shots, in which the sky should be replaced for a more dramatic one. There is a reshoot planned, but it is doubtful that this will be successful. If the weather isn't right on this particular day it will be no good at all.
Is there a collection of sky images(preferable movies) for sale you recommend? Of course I know of this company called Google, but the problem is there a millions of hits, but there is caveat in every single item I could find. Either it's not the mood the director wants, or resolution is not good enough or it is useless timelapse and so on

Do you know of recommendable stock footage bundle with -let's say- a few hundreds of sky images or movies in high resolution(4k and above)? I am so desperate I really think of rendering those clouds....
