What are these?
These are short high definition clips for use by editors and compositors. They work with any editing package - however I am delivering them as Quicktimes. By layering them over your images, using a compositing style such as 'screen' you add colour and interest - reminiscent of old style film effects.
What's different about these?
I use these kinds of clips a lot in my work. There are a lot of them online already so I've tried to do something different. Firstly, I've tried to have a slower, more elegant style to these. Secondly, I've made sure they are in the top HD ProRes quality. Thirdly, I've collected by style so you don't have to search through loads of clips to find the one you want. Lastly, there is no audio track for these clips - so when you drag them on your timeline you won't interfere with your audio.
How do I get them?
For each collection I've put up a sample via youtube. There is then a file to download.
- 1080p HD
- ProRes format (Movs)
- Zipped together in batches of 6 or 7
How did you do them?
I took the lens off of my camera and added various glass objects to the front instead - then combined that with lamps and light sources.
Are they free?

Set Two: Warm, Shuttering Light Leaks - for using as wipes.
These beautiful light leaks are like pulses of light moving across the screen. Similar to lens flare / film burn effects. These are also suitable to be used as wipes, if composited over the two images as I have ensured the brightness levels max out as they pass across the screen. Composite using the 'screen' style for best effect. There are 9 clips in the set.

Set Three: Multi-coloured sparkles
This sparkle backdrop can be used either as a background for titles or used to composite over other footage, to give it a shine. The colours in this are really rich so they will shine through into the final edit. This is a single 1080p ProRes HD MOV clip to download.
