What you do with your lighting is just as important as what you do in post-production to acheive that film look. A telltale sign of video is it’s poor handling of overexposed subjects – e.i. washed out whites. If you light you subject carefully, you will be one step closer to obtaining a faux film look.
It’s also important to shoot on a video camera that shoots 24P ( 24 frames of progressive).
Once you’ve digitized your footage, check out Magic Bullet – a great piece of software that has a variety of film look presets.
Hope this helps.
