Elements of a good video invite

Spooky background music

Set the tone of your Halloween video invitation by adding eerie music and sound effects to your video. Find up-beat Halloween jingles to spooky lo-fi music by searching through the huge range of royalty-free music tracks.  

Scary scene transitions

Add to the mysterious vibe on your video invitation with the help of scene transitions. Place a transition like tv interference, digital glitch, ink, fire, fade through black, and glitch reveal between two video clips to create a scary Halloween vibe.  

Compelling narration and voiceovers

Level up your Halloween party invite with a ghoulish voiceover narration in a range of voices and tones to suit your scary aesthetic. Share event details or a wicked story to make your invite one to remember.  

Clear animated text with event information

Enhance your Halloween invite and add emphasis on party details with animated text. Add mysterious titles like the glitch text to your Halloween video invite to stay on theme and transform accessibility.
