How to create your own Special Effects

Create your own Muzzle flashes, Spark effects and Light Flares with practical effects and Adobe Premiere Pro. Learn how to make everything yourself and create a stunning action movie!

It’s time again for yet another Creative Tuesday. And today we are going to be creative with explosions. Wait! What did you say? Explosions?! Yes you heard me, but explosions is maybe the wrong name. We are going to buy firecrackers in the local fireworks store. I know, that sounds less awesome. However we are going to do some cool stuff with it. We are going to show you how you can create you own Muzzle Stock footage. But not only that, we are also showing how to make sparks and light leaks. Everything you need to create your own action movie. But we warn you to be cautious and be safe! We already did it for you, so if you’re not certain of your safety just take ours!

Now that we are talking about stock footage and making it for your own. Did you know you can also sell them if you want and make some extra cash from it. And this is where Videoblocks comes in to help you! They use a special contributor platform that let’s you sell  your footage in a easy way. They also split the commission 50/50 between you and them. So that’s not a bad deal, for doing practically nothing.

A tip we can give you is shoot footage of everything. Everywhere you go, take your camera with you and make some shots. This way you can create your own library of stock footage which you can sell of course. At first your profit will be low, this is normal. But when you have more footage online and start making a name for yourself, your profits will also start increasing. Another tip, make series. For example, when going to a forest make a couple of different shots in that forest and upload it a series. When people are searching for a specific shot, they like to have options. But maybe they also need a follow up shot, which they then all can find in your collection.
