Where there is a party, there’s always a camera. So it’s not really a question of whether you’re mare making a video on Halloween – either a professional clip or just a quick couple of shots to go down the memory lane in a couple of years – it is a question of how free your SD card or cloud storage is for the night.

Back in black – Black effects for your video

Black Effects in Animotica

Good old black and white video effects let you dive into the retro atmosphere of the horror film classics that spooked you (or even your parents) when they were tiny bitsy believers in the supernatural.

How can you infuse your video with the retro vibe of Halloween Classics? 

Why so negative? – Color filters for your video

Invert Effect in Animotica

Speaking of unforgettable color effects, saturated yellows and reds can make your video as spooky as the grim and dark tones black. 

Pro tip: Invert the colors in your clip for a second or so to make the viewer question their sanity. Was what they just saw really on screen or was it a figment of their Halloween-fueled imagination?

Who knows?

Bloody Marry – Mirror effects for your video

Mirror Effects in Animotica

If there’s something horror films have taught us, it is that the mirror on the wall doesn’t necessarily show Snow White’s beauty. Sometimes, on very special nights such as the 31st of October, a reflection – any reflection – holds the power over a portal to a realm you really don’t want to be in. 

How about bringing that dimension “to the big screen”?

A spooky collage – Collage effects for your video
