Earl is very correct – Making home movies NOT look like home movies starts in your mind, then progresses to the camera. You cna do things in your editor to help but first you have to have 1) A good idea of what you are wanting as a final product, and 2) decent source material (footage).

I would suggest you start learning to utilize your NLE of choice to it’s fullest using what footage you already have (things like color correction, cropping, audio sweetening, etc…) and then try again using better caemera techniques and an eye toward the “shoot to edit” mindset.
