Very very good film look simulation! Congrats. Only aspect that I would consider susceptible of improvement is the white balance which is maybe too white at times... a little bit of magenta or yellow cast could be used in some shots

Nice! I liked you use 15fps.

Agreed. How are you converting the MLV? I think you might get a better result using MLVApp, configured to output LogC. Then convert with FilmConvert with the profile called "Arri / Alexa / LogCfilm" (note: not the normal LogC. This one uses a "film matrix" to convert the colors). The company Cinegrain also offers some very neat conversions and textures.
Check these curves:

I realy like the effect and just to try another suggestion, I'm not sure if that could help, but to me seems that flickering is not in sync with the flickering sound, or flikering is not strong enough?
I'm using ML2.3 for photography with:
EOS 600DML | EOS 400Dplus | EOS 5D MLbeta5- EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro  - EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM - EF 70-200mm f/4 L USM - 580EXII - OsX, PS, LR, RawTherapee, LightZone -no video experience-

This is 100% believable to me haha. Good job. The choppy framerate and handheld sells it.

I use MLVapp too ! Such an amazing software to deal with raw footage.
I out put it as logC then use filmconvert to simulate film colors
Thanks for sharing the curves and the method!

Thanks for the compliment! I never noticed it until you have said it! Will surely try to tweak it a slight bit!
