any editor can do the aged effect, iMovie hd does it well. (it add the flicker and scratches and b+w conversion.)
you could experiment with slowing the clip down, applying the aged film filter, then speeding it back up…..
any camera will do for this. the image quality back then wasn’t high def.
You may also want to look for some old movie music in the public domain (piano). and stick a card in a bicycle wheel and spin the wheel for some foley sound (to mimic) of an old projector running film….
also watch some old movies!
the lighting is vital (and cheap to recreate). as is a uv filter with some petrolium jelly for soft focus, and or shooting through some panty hose.
a lot of talc powder on your talent with overdone eyeshadow and mascara!
