8mm Film Grain


As seen in movies such as Robert Rodriguez's Natural Born Killers (1994), J.J. Abrams's Super 8 (2011), Bruno Mattei & Claudio Fragasso's Hell of the Living Dead (1980), Steven Spielberg's Firelight (1964) and Abraham Zapruder's infamous Zapruder film, 8mm's vintage film look is extremely useful with filmmakers for creating flashback sequences, but they're also a useful tool for your color grading. If you're planning on including one of these types of sequences in your film and would like to avoid the hassle of working with actual film you can instantly achieve that washout, gritty, grainy, distressed 8mm film look by adding these authentic 8mm film grain plates to your footage. 

Other reasons to use a film grain overlay

Besides easily achieving that film look, film grain overlays can fix plastic looking footage which de-noising can cause, helps reduce color banding when compressing videos for the web, and grain can increase the perceived sharpness of your image.
