Hi Folks:

 

  Maybe I posted this in the wrong place. I originally posted this in the visual effects section, and I'm thinking maybe that wasn't right as this isn't a big effect like multilayering or CG animatics. I have a friend who is doing a mockumentary and he wants to use some VHS video that I shot back in the 90's of a 70's party on a single chip consumer VHS camcorder. I want to make it look like VHS from a 70's tube camera and I thought about playing it on a flat screen and shooting it on a tube camera. I did something similar with some digital video and a super 8 camera with Ektachrome and made quasi news film.I thought about doing the same here, but I really want the tube look. I want to see those comet trails on the disco ball.

Very intriguing. Thank you.Wish I could post some of this, but the video is for a private corporate party and no one signed model releases.I've posted this is some other places and got very little response. Must not be a popular effect.
