I created my first set of film burns (FREE one’s) as an answer to achieving that vintage accent look of Indie film. Washes of color and light mesmerized me and I thought to myself how can I “bottle” up that effect? So I set out experimenting and created the free set that I now gift to you. My passion for film burns and light leaks didn’t stop there though and I continued to study different concepts of light, color and shape; refined the techniques I was using to create my LUSTER film burns and light leaks…. They are now available for the first time for download.

I’ve used them on award winning projects and to give my work the authentic look of Indie film. Experience the indie film look on your films and if for whatever reason you’re not completely satisfied, let me know and I’ll refund your money. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED OR YOUR MONEY BACK!!!

The way to use these is to add them to your video track 2 or above the clip you wan to apply the film burn to. Then set the composite or transfer mode to “screen” adjust opacity to liking and throttle the opacity to taste with keyframing. You can also stack these on top of each and play with them to get any number of combinations and effects. I find the best place for these is at the beginning of a clip or as a really cool transition. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask :)

Being very new to video editing and video period, I’m wondering if your film burn clips work in iMovie ‘11 or Final Cut Express?

Final Cut Express supports transfer/blend modes so it will work. I'm not sure about imovie 11 though. If you have the documentation for it, do a search for "composite" mode and then it will tell you if it does. Great question!
