Posted by | filmmaking | No Comments

So you want to write a screenplay, but you’re not sure you want to dish out $170 to $250 for Final Draft, or that you want to learn how to use free online screenplay writers like Celtx (It’s really not free if you want to use it properly). But you have this story you desperately want to tell that’s burning a hole in your head?

Fear not!

Download this Microsoft word template and watch the video below on how to use the template easily to format your screenplay.

Free Ink bleed, Ink Drop Resources

Posted by | After Effects, filmmaking | No Comments

Below are links to free ink bleed and ink matte resources for filmmakers.

1. Ink Mattes from The Creative Dojo:

Free Ink Matte Pack

I’d use these for water color effects.
2. Ink drops:

There’s a Gumroad download link. All you have to do is type in ‘0’ (Zero) in the price, and it’ll allow you to download.

3. Ink Bleeds

Ink Stock Footage

You can download the footage individually. And they’re all free.
