WATCH: How J.J. Abrams Makes Those Annoying Lens Flares

Anyone who has seen Star Trek has been practically blinded by his utter overuse of this camera trick. It doesn’t make things look slick and new, J.J. It just makes things impossible to look at.

Well, here’s a nice little video to show you how he made those lens flares and a nice parody of why he shouldn’t use them in Star Wars.
