I had some success last year on video origination with a daVinci by dragging the blue channel to zero on the gui. Then drove the gain pretty hard to cause it to break up a bit and added a little texture with the defocus tool in reverse. Adjust the blue gain channel to taste. A hard vignette and it looked pretty good. If it is originated on RED it would probably be beneficial to set your transcode up to give you a lot of headroom for highlites so your whites dont go screaming off the charts before you tear the video a bit.
