film grain

DR Studio has OFX film grain as part of the software ... it is good ... I also have FilmConvert and Red Giant Looks as OFX ... but 

FC takes twice as long to render ... so I usually use the bundled film grain ... as 35mm grain but I adjust size density and color of the grain.

It allows for a bit more realistic look without being simu-film in character. Increases perceived sharpness due to edge effect, masks noise,

.... covers a multitude of flaws.

Just add as a node ... and vary the intensity to personal preference.

Also, remember to adjust the amount of grain you're applying so that it looks good in your final delivery file.  Compressing video really kills the grain, especially YouTube or other online streaming services.

I'd suggest making a test project with a series of shots with increasing strengths of grain, output it, upload it, then look at it and dial it in from there.

Didn't you learn from the GOT guy? Just make it look good in the edit software and to hell with delivery or how anyone else watches it.
