Turning faded color movies into glorious black and white.

I decided to see what sort of BW could be made from a faded color movie. I downloaded a sample of a faded movie I found online of a 16mm film that was projected on a wall. Seems that a faded color movie can be turned into a decent BW film.

This sample had Lightroom post processing done such as contrast, black development and color filter adjustment. Nothing that could not be globally applied to a batch of individual TIFF files harvested from a faded movie.
