These film light leaks & overlays were created by our co-founder, Matt, during his process while shooting, developing, and scanning all of his own film at home – from there, he used all of the ‘scraps’ from his photo-shoots to create some cool light leaks, film grain, and dust so you can use them on all of your photos or videos and create some cool, old-school magic. :)

In this free kit, you’ll get 5 unique film light leak effects that you can overlay and blend onto your photos to get that real 35mm film feel! There is also 1 BONUS film border with a small light leak that you can use to create a cool vintage looking image.
