I was wondering how to get this look with a plugin/preset/project/setting. Thanks!

If you mean the color...The easy way is to use Magic Bullet Movie Looks... Curahee (?) or Bleach Bypass or No 85 color filters (if my memory is correct)... or you can mess with the hue/saturation, grain and curves filters to achieve the effect.

If you mean the camera shake... then, you take the original footage using a hand held camera... or, you can add it by using ProDAD's Mercalli's Shake effect/filter... or, try and use Twitch with Andrew Kramer's plug-ins. the sample looks like it was shot by a handheld camera.

Another way, if money's an object and you don't have Magic Bullet, is to play around with Tint and Curves adjustment layers and changing their transfer modes; and Trish and Chris Meyer's "instant sex" effect wherein you duplicate the layer and composite it with itself using a transfer mode - was it overlay?...Screen?- and modifying its opacity value.

You can also roll your own Bleach Bypass like AE √úbermeister Andrew Kramer does here:

Yeah, if you're talking about the color it looks to me like you could easily get that look by dropping the color saturation to what looks right and then maybe mess with the contrast a bit.

Doesn't look like anything to complicated.

Good luck.

I agree. Doesn't look complicated. Levels and/or contrast adjustment layer - desaturate one or two color channels... Maybe just the red channel.

I agree with everything already said. Here's an example with the settings I used. You can play with the curves to get a more or less blown out feel to it.
