Firstly, B-roll footage, Broll or B roll is any supplemental video that considered to be secondary to your primary footage. Also, B-roll can be gathered with a separate unit, acquired from stock footage, or obtained from any source other than your principal photography. 

The term for A-roll vs B-roll originated in the earliest days of Hollywood moviemaking when principal footage was called A-roll. Then an identical roll of film, the B-roll, was used for filler and transitional cuts.
