That has a couple good examples of adding motion.
I keep forgetting about the vignette in Lumetri.

Here is another short, but good one (see 0:27):

So good info on both clips. My only comment is that I am not a fan of that over saturated color look. To Me it makes things not look real, or that they were made on a cheap camera.

I agree with Sidd on the over saturation. Just adding a little contrast and warmth will go a long way. My version of the Warp Stabilizer will not allow me to keyframe scale or motion. I usually export as a new clip and then use that one for the keyframing. Sometimes the Warp Stabilizer will scale the clip too much and you wouldn't want to scale it up again. Another trick on shaky video is to slow it down just a bit.
