Authentic super 8mm film burns and overlays for digital video editing

Super 8mm light leaks – Kodak Ektachrome

This is an experiment that was done with a super 8 camera and a roll of Kodak Ektachrome. The goal was here to create the best looking light leaks and flash frames possible. To easily use these film effects, just place them over your footage and simply apply the “screen” or “lighten” composite modes.

Kodak Ektachrome 100D Color Transparency Film #7294 is a daylight-balanced color transparency movie film characterized by its extremely fine grain structure, vibrant color rendering, and overall low-contrast profile. The lower contrast values contribute to a wide dynamic range and a neutral tonal scale for greater color accuracy, and a low D-min helps ensure brighter, whiter whites. It has a medium-speed nominal sensitivity of ISO 100/21° when shot in daylight conditions, and the smooth grain profile pairs with a micro-structure optimized T-GRAIN emulsion to make it especially well suited to telecine applications and digital post-production processes.

So this all means that what you get your hands on are scans of very real analog film footage. You can not ask for more organic and authentic material. Enjoy using it on any project like a music video, a feature length film, a documentary or an experimental art project.
