Im looking for a recipe for creating the late 70's early 80's Exploitation movie/tv show look. Not looking for the grind house effect more of the original Charlie's Angles look or the early 80's Shaw brothers Kung fu films. Im using FCP and I have Red Giant Suite, CS5, and FX Factory. All footage is shot with a 5D Mark II.

Thanks in advance.

Making a film look old isnt hard to do. I'm pretty sure you could do it in FCP. Its just applying a filter

It isn't as simple as owning a few tools. You may want to try to find a colorist to work with. It's what they do.

I agree, getting the right balance of exaggerated colors, contrast & brightness is key. i shoot a lot of DSLR footage with a lensbaby composer and attachments for a real soft and warm 70's look. Once I process that footage thru the right filter setting I am golden.
