Old 8mm Film Look

I had a discussion with Tom Beg a while ago about the old film look he gave his Life Cycle of a Mushroom

we also discussed how to alter the clip to make it less generic as its often used.

Here's the clip

And a link to applying it to our animation thanks to Video CoPilot

I think the footage as it is is far too strong for our animation, perhaps testing a reduction in opacity and flipping the footage to reverse plus expanding it to remove most of the thick black border

  1. This is definitely the way we should be heading, I feel, albeit less intense on the grain and flickering of frame lighting.

    If we could find some way to make use a hint of grain from this old film looks, I think we'd make some hefty progress on the old-style overlay we'd use.
