If you have seen the movie "Firewall" (although many other action movies use this), then you will probably remember the quick scenes from a security camera POV and edited to have a fish-eye lens, interlaced, slow frame speed, etc. (Even the occasional "glitches" and scan lines)

So, equipped with Adobe's Premiere 2.0, After Effects 7, and Photoshop CS2, how could I pull this effect off with maximum authenticity? Any filters would be great, too.

Thanks!

Before you digitally manipulate your footage why not play it on a tv and shoot it off the screen first...

yeah, and then adjust it to a low contrast b&w. Then maybe add a sort of oldness to the film. I know in Premiere you can do this, but just make it subtle.

Hope it works out!
