Absolutely in agreement with Gustavo on this one. It's pretty easy to say "just shoot with film," but when you've got a client (or better yet, yourself) caught in a situation where they WANT a filmic, analogue texture, but can only afford to shoot in HD...well, you do what you can do.

From that stand point, this seems like a really killer solution, and I certainly plan on getting my hands on that 4K scan. The singular issue that I have with every film grain simulation is that, from my perspective at least, there's a very tactile difference between anything we can conjure up and the real-deal.

There's a very subtle...fluidity to the grain in chemically processed celluloid that seems to flow naturally with the motions on screen. Most of the time, an overlay will give the illusion of this effect - but I've never seen a digital grain simulation that's able to 100% accurately match it.
