Give Your Video a “Film Look”

You can get that expensive film look, even when using digital video.

Many people prefer the look of film to the look of video. Unfortunately, film is expensive to shoot with. But, if you are willing to plan ahead, shoot under certain conditions, and take a little time in post-production, then you can come close to giving your video a “film look.” Figure 6-1 shows an unaffected frame of video, and the same frame with a film-look applied.
