11 Companies giving away FREE filmmaking assets

An easy way to make your project look more ‘cinematic’ is to overlay film grain, light leaks or other film-specific attributes. They can be used to emulate film stock, create transitions or for experimental and aggressive looks. There are many expensive options you can buy to achieve these looks…but for the low budget filmmaker FREE is a fabulous price!

I’ve compiled assets from 11 companies that graciously offer their HD video files at no cost whatsoever. Even though they are free…they are high quality and when applied properly…create a convincing and authentic effect.  Enjoy!

  1. These are very cool. Thank you for sharing! The light leak I’ve used for wedding videos before. I can’t wait to try the dust particle effects.
