What is the Free Video Project? 

In 2008 the Head of Vidiots Channel TV Productions (formerly Blame it on Jon Productions) was seeking out video effects to use in local cable TV show with a small budget. At that time availability for cheap, much less free effects was extremely limited. When production went into hiatus between seasons he decided to it was time to quit looking for effects & instead he began experimenting with & creating effects. All the while he kept thinking there must be other film & video creators who were facing the same problems.
In 2009, using a his secondary Youtube account VidiotsChannel, he began uploading free effects. Simultaneously, the Free Video Project at was launched to provide footage for those who do not have the resources or time to create them
