Wasn't real sure where to put this... So it fits best here.

 

Does anyone have an advice on making digital footage have the sort of grainy, gritty look of this music video? The look would fit a short film I'm working on, but no amount of playing in Resolve can, well, resolve what I'm looking for. I tried to bump up jitter and grain, as well as washing out some of the black. Short of shooting this on an older style film stock, is there a similar way to get digital to look like this?

 

It almost appears as if it's shot on Super 8, yet it doesn't quite look grainy or jittery enough. Feels very 70's-ish to me.

 

Thanks in advance!

There are 'grain' filters, some may be free, some may have some cost. I've experiemented with After Effects 'grain' filters, and probably would use them where I to make a B&W film, but for color the 'free' filters never seemed to give me the effect I want.

 

I don't know what is available with the 'free' Resolve, as I only use it for my color correction activities, but use Premiere and AE for editing or graphics. I've had the Fusion installer for a while, but have not even installed it... My excuse for zero filmmaking activities is the Wife got a grant to do an art event at Burning Man which has taken all our 'spare' time for the last 8 months...

 

If you do have some 'free' filters, I'd suggest seeing if they have a 'randomize' each frame option. Otherwise the effect is almost instantaneously 'obvious'.

 

Color 'grain' is a slight bit more mushy than B&W, as the region where the 'color' dye is captured is 'fuzzier' than the original silver crystal that was used to capture the light.

1. DaVinci= Balance color per shot
2. DaVinci= Add external corrector layer to generate the tint per shot
3. DaVinci= Add external corrector layer to generate highlight softness
4. AE = Add jitter .5 should do
5. AE = Overlay 16mm film grain/noise (download this for free online)
