I'm throwing myself on the mercy of these forums to find the best way to recreate either an old precolour
video look or, going further back, a grainer old black & white film look.
Think early Ed Sullivan, or this fantastic black & white clip of Dave Brubeck.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwNrmYRiX_o
I'm not looking for easy solutions (ie plugins or quick effects). I really want this to look authentic and legitimate.
Otherwise it falls flat.
Any interesting avenues to pursue? Ways to treat the stock? Settings on the camera? Tips? Hints? Magic tricks?
I can pursue any format (16mm, 35mm, video).
Thank you for your time (and anyone else who could possible leave me with a genius solution).
