I've visited CreativeCow over 1000 times but this is the first time I ask a question myself.
Without further ado;
I made a animation but it's just too plain. It's missing something like a effect but I don't know what. I'm not looking for a color filter, I guess. I added a grain before but than it looks nasty. Maybe a plugin that all images get like ripped paper edges?
I added some shots of the worse looking scenes. Any ideas or tips?
I think that some lighting would go a long way here.
You talk about torn edges and adding grain; maybe instead of these, using some real textures instead of flat areas of color would totally change the look.
