Looking at previous research I have conducted, I have found that a lot of the vintage footage had a vignetted look. This is best shown using this image below:-
This is a technique I want to use in my piece as I believe it ages a piece well when combined with grading the footage. This can be done in After Effects post-production once the footage ha been collected. I can radial feather a layer produce this kind of effect. I need to se if it darkens the edges of the tiles too much that they blend into the background which is not what I want to happen. Now I will start to play with textures to produce a scratched and abused piece of footage.
