Just so you know

Film overlays for still photos refer to the visual effect of adding a layer of 16mm film texture on top of a still photograph. This can create a vintage or retro look to the photo, giving it a unique and artistic appearance. The overlay can include characteristics of 16mm film such as grain, scratches, and dust, which can add an organic and nostalgic feel to the image.

16mm film is a type of motion picture film that has a width of 16mm. It was introduced in 1923 by Eastman Kodak as a more affordable alternative to 35mm film. Despite its smaller size, 16mm film was widely used in the film industry for documentaries, educational films, and independent productions. It was also used for home movies and amateur filmmaking. Today, 16mm film is less commonly used due to the rise of digital technology, but it still holds a special place in the history and aesthetics of film.

For aesthetic purposes, the film was over scanned

Film overscan is a term used to describe the process of scanning a film frame with an area that extends beyond the visible edges of the frame. This is done to ensure that the entire frame is captured, including any information that may be present in the overscan area. The overscan area is typically used to capture any film damage, splices, or other imperfections that may be present at the edge of the frame. By capturing this information, the overscan area can be used to help restore or repair the film during the post-production process.
