1. I was wondering if there are any options in telecine (or other methods) to shift the frame so you can pick up the edges of the film. I'm looking to create a little bob and weave effect as if the film is shaking in the gate...but I want to try to avoid doing anything digitally.

2. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good method of doing scratches on a piece of film. My plan is to take around 20-30ft and expose it, then make random scratches with a small sharp object, process it regularly, take it into avid and invert the black and white, take out the black and super impose the white scratches on my film.

Any alternatives or suggestions are most welcome.

Scratches: you can try bucket processing - unroll your film into a light-tight container, pour in the chemicals, shake for the proper time, wash, dry, and you're done! The film emulsion is very soft during processing and is easily scratched by adjacent film loops and the container walls.

An example of a dedicated bucket processor site:
