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!


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 - 

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!

Free to download 4K Gold Shimmer clip - very sparkly, shiny and Christmassy

Here is my latest 4K light leak. Well, its not quite a light leak. It's more of a backdrop or compositing tool. However, as always, it features real natural light and objects, no plug ins, no CGI.

As with all my clips, 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.

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, I tried to compress it as little as possible to retain the quality

Download here (175MB) -

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 page.

If HD 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...

If you are super kind and get something out of using these then please donate a small amount via the button below...
