Free HD light leak - a prism sweep effect - useful for wipes

I found a few old HD clips that I never shared. All my new leaks on here are 4K, but this one I think is very useful one, even if its only 1080p. As with all my clips, it features real natural light and objects, no plug ins, no CGI.

As always, it is available for free via Creative Commons, details below. I collect all my light leaks and clips on a special page where there are MORE FREE DOWNLOADS, so bookmark it.

So far, my light leaks have been downloaded well over 700,000 times! And used in TV shows on NatGeo, Discovery and BBC1. As well as games, apps, movie trailers and indie films.





This sparkling prism wipe or sweep has a kind of 'lighthouse' look to it. Very colourful defraction effects too. It can be composited over your footage or be used as an alpha channel to make your footage ghost into view or as a dissolve between shots.

You can download it in 1080p HD Quicktime format from here: (all 4 clips in 1 download)

If you are using these clips for a commercial project with a budget then get in touch. I make the leaks free for non-commercial use (short films etc). Creative Commons details on the main HD leaks page.

If 4K leaks are of interest to you (under the same conditions) then I have loads here.

If you want to do me a favour because of all this cool stuff - that would be great too. Cheers. A few suggestions...

Free 4K bokeh effect - golden hues

Here is my latest 4K stock footage clips. It's probably best used as a backdrop or compositing element. As with all my clips, it features real natural light and objects, no plug ins, no CGI.

As always, it is available for free via Creative Commons, details below.

I collect all my light leaks and clips on a special page where there are MORE FREE DOWNLOADS, so bookmark it. So far, my light leaks have been downloaded well over 700,000 times! And used in TV shows on NatGeo, Discovery and BBC1. As well as games, apps, movie trailers and indie films.







This is one continuous clip. So you composite it over other shots, use it as a background for text or speed it up for even more different looks. It is a large MP4 file, but I aimed to compress it as little as possible to retain the quality

Merry Christmas - my movie 2017




Yes, it is that season again already! Time for my Christmas film. Amazingly, I've been doing this ‘cinematic' nonsense for over a decade now. And still everyone is just too damn polite to tell me to stop. Suckers!

WATCH IT ABOVE OR VIA THIS LINK = https://youtu.be/5398bD-TzjU 

Anyway, this year I thought I would experiment with the new piece of software from Adobe called Character Animator. And combine that with my own slightly downbeat yuletide vibe that has become the overall theme of these Christmas movies! An unusual mix, combining to form the epic short movie; “Angry Christmas Objects" Enjoy!

And if you missed last year’s short film, it was a fantastic one take wonder, featuring a brilliant young actress - https://youtu.be/6Eh15sHzAmA 

Cheers to Emily Gilbert for the illustration of myself, which is from the book The UK Scriptwriters Survival Handbook. Just one of many bits of Tim Clague merchandise that you can now festoon your home with. All of them are equally useful in portraying yourself as classy, fashionably creative, an intellectual and wealthy enough to waste money on kids films and books et cetera! Genius.

But if you are interesting in scriptwriting at all, I would make a special plug for our newest book; “Write a Script in 10 Weeks” which may prove a handy guide for kicking of 2018 in a creative manner.

Have a cool yule and a cheery new year!

Real light leak wipes to download - 4K

Here is my latest 4K light leak. It features real natural light, no plug ins, no CGI.

As with all my leaks, it is available for free via Creative Commons, details below.

I collect all my light leaks on a special page where there are MORE FREE DOWNLOADS, so bookmark it. So far my light leaks have been downloaded well over 700,000 times! And used in TV shows on NatGeo, Discovery and BBC1. As well as games, apps, movie trailers and indie films.







THERE ARE SIX CLIPS IN THIS ONE DOWNLOAD, so that adds a lot of variety. And, in your edit package, you can alter the speed of the clips (or reverse it) then you can create even more different looks. As they get very bright for a few frames, you can composite them over cuts (maybe use 'screen' mode) to create more interesting transitions. It is a large MP4 file, I tried to compress it as little as possible to retain the quality
