PremiumBeat’s “Free Week” has been a hit for the past few years, and they keep getting better. These effects were 100% captured and created in house by the PremiumBeat team, all for you to use in your next project! Check out below what they have for you this year.

Looking to emulate JJ Abrams by adding a bunch of lens flares in your next project? Well, you don’t have to go out and rent expensive anamorphic lenses or try to hit light at your lens at a perfect angle. All you have to do with these lens flares is blend them into your project in post production. All filmed with anamorphic lenses, these flares all have the classic “oval shaped” distinction to them that creates a better cinematic effect compared to ones shot one regular lenses.Get Your Free Anamorphic Lens Flares

If there’s one thing that can take you out of an action film, it’s when you see a gun being fired with no muzzle flash coming out of it. With the action hits toolkit, you can create an entire action sequence with just the effects in the download. Add muzzle flashes to your barrels, dirt hits to the walls, and even spark hits if your bullets are striking a metal wall.

They have also included a Magic/Sci-Fi Toolkit, which is great for creating a “spell coming out of a wand” effect for any of your upcoming Harry Potter-inspired videos. It’s even useful for creating forcefields.Get Your Free Action Kit
No need to capture footsteps on set (which is difficult to remember in the first place), since this pack has sound effects for every type of location. With footsteps on concrete, grass, wood floors, and even snow in several different speeds, you can match these steps to your footage to dramatically increase the level of your project’s soundscape. The best part about these footsteps is that they were recorded in a soundproof studio. So, you can isolate the sound of the footsteps of your choice and adjust their volume to your desired level.Get Your Free Footsteps Kit
