80’S VHS ANALOG COLLECTION

These are not film scans, but it is still some pretty cool stuff. We got ourselves an old VCR in a pawn shop and experimented with VHS tapes to get many great effects. We also played around with noise from analog televisions. For VHS files to use as overlays: White surfaces are good with multiply and black surfaces are good with the screen composite mode.

Filmlooks.com has the most interesting collection of authentic film scans you will ever find on the Internet. You are a digital artist, an indie filmmaker, a motion designer or a video editor and you are looking for a great way to give that super cool film look to your masterpiece. Well, you’re just at the right place.

We have the greatest 1080p HD scans of artefacts on celluloid such as 16mm grain, super 8mm grain, dirt and scratches, deteriorations, film burns, light leaks, flash frames, splices and beautiful photo chemical reactions due to bad processing. We also offer some superb footage of old countdowns, head and tail leaders, and artistically colored film.

Our clips were originally created from film that was shot with super 8mm and 16mm vintage cameras and that film was then processed in a surviving film laboratory. Some of the film got intentionally beat up, and then, everything got digitized with a high-res telecine scanner. The Quicktime files (Most of them are Apple Pro Res) will work on any decent video editing or compositing software such as Final cut pro, Adobe after effects, Adobe premiere or Avid media composer.

If you plan to use some of our files as filters, just place them in your timeline over your footage, and play around with chroma keys or apply a composite mode such as overlay or screen. You can also do some tweaking with the levels and the opacity until you get the desired feel you are looking for. Soon, there will be a great amount of tutorials available for free on the site. Just so you can discover some amazing ways to use our products.

As an underground filmmaker, I was often looking for the best way to give a great film look to my digital creations. A lots of options were available on the internet but there was nothing I could find that would blow my mind. Most of the stuff on the market was digitally fabricated and when I could find something decent and authentic, there was no variety and it was simply too expensive.

I then decided that I was going to make my self some truly great filters just the way I always dreamed about. I got my hands on vintage film equipment and after months and months of experimentations with the help of professionals, I was able to achieve some pretty neet stuff. I am very happy with my products and I’m glad to share it with you at affordable prices. Filmlooks is an online store but It will also become a learning platform and I wish that a great community will grow around it.

Thanks for your interest in Filmlooks products.

Truly yours, David Charbonneau, Owner at Filmlooks.com
