We want something along the lines of this:

I want that old school look, I want it to have that overblown blue/green look. We are going to be filming on 16mm Negative (7219) since we have a bunch of extra rolls of it. All exterior shots, and in only daylight.
So far this is what we're planning on.
We're going to color process the film.
throw on some 85b (since we have tungsten balanced film)
Overexpose (not sure by how much yet) to get a more blown out look.
I know there's some tricks we can do in post to achieve the look, but I want to do as much as I can at the shoot.
Any tips on the color processing, or ways to get that certain look? Should we get a softing mist filter? Any help or advice would be awesome.

Anyway, I'd start out with an old lens, like the classically poor 12-120mm Ang. zoom, before resorting to diffusion filters.
Both clips have a 70's home movie aesthetic, not a 70's Hollywood movie aesthetic.

I would try shooting with cameras like the Bolex RX5 with Switar lenses, and the Canon Scoopic 16M for a zoom.
Wouldn't bother with diffusion filters or drastic overexposure. If possible I would try a slower daylight stock - Fuji 8622 64D would be nice. Fill in with tungsten fresnels gelled with CTB.
Maybe you can try making a workprint and do a telecine off of that to get that old school texture.
