Saturday Night Live Security Camera Look With DAMAGE

by Steven Reeves

Saturday Night Live has a sketch in which the police won't stand for one man's (Aziz Ansari) opinion of a movie. The police refer to some security camera footage as proof of him not liking La La Land.

Check out the sketch below:

The look of the security cam footage (around 0:37) can be recreated using tools from the DAMAGE suite.

Using a mixture of Interference and Skew, any footage can be transformed to look like it came from a cheap, or hidden security camera. Feel free to make your own version of this look, or try the free preset we already have available for you.

Our version of a security camera look is shown below:
