Our friends at MotionArray.com are giving away a tilt-shift effect FREE template for After Effects!
Tilt-shift, when done by a skilled hand, can be a really impressive effect. In the last few years, with the proliferation of DSLRs, we’re seeing tilt-shift video effects pop up more and more.

For those unfamiliar, tilt-shift is a photo/video effect that gives scenes the appearance of miniaturization through selective focus (created by specialized lenses, post-production focusing or a combination). For more on the history and technical aspects of tilt-shift check out this Wikipedia entry.
