    You could go with a filter on the lense or one in your software. Try both and see which works best for you.

    for software effects adobe after effects (although most good editing software has an array of built in filters). for analogue filtered effects (glass or gelatin filters) cokin, hoya or B&W are brands to look at. You might find the effect you want will require a number of filters. (it sounds like a either a diffussion or sand filter and a warming filter or tobacco filter would be a good starting point) the axiom we were taught at uni sort of holds true, shoot it clean as it is easier to mess around with a well shot sequence than alter a poorly shot one, however sometimes digital filtering simply cannot reproduce the effects that careful use of filters, lighting etc can.

    if you have the time and money try both. as each method has its own merrits.
