It's a cool concept. Just not my cup of tea.
I teach photography so I hear ya. I can send people a "cross process" curve if they really want to get that vintage style. I used to say 5 years ago that film would make a comeback around 2015 since everyone will shoot digital and film would have a unique feel...then Instagram came out and I said nevermind. My favorite conversation with my students goes like this:
Student: I bought a a digital camera...how do I get my pictures to look like a vintage film camera?
Me: Simple...its only two steps!
Me: Yes. Step 1, buy a vintage film camera...step 2, shoot pictures
