Started when I was young.
I have done a lot of film editing just messing around so I was curious if there were ways to do it.
Oh and they actually filmed part of grindhouse 5 minutes from my house at a historic jail.
Obviously.. It never looks legit though.
Most editing programs will have a "vintage" or "retro", color grade effect but it is mainly a bunch of static or showing the film roll occasionally appear.
I've tried watching many of my Russ Meyer films in their original format and also on HD and they all hold up. Probably because Russ was a genius with a camera and was able to capture the bounteous surroundings in his films. Hitchcock, Lean and Spielberg are grade school directors compared to him. Here he is with a struggling writer-Roger Ebert-who helped write 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls'=an obvious Oscar snub.
In theory I'd try to maybe lower the contrast, add grain, and use a Connery color palette... maybe some gate weaving... I'd also try to blur it a bit.
The man from uncle remake did something similar. Actually liked it, had a retro vibe to it. Not sure how it would work with a Bond film though?
Of course it would.
Film with old cameras, then send the reel to be polished and remastered. You have what you want. ;)
