    It's called 'selective coloring' when the color is left in only parts of an image. There was quite a bit of just straight black & white footage.

    A portion looked like it was shot with an El Cheapo plastic 'fisheye' lens attachment, that actually gave a lot of barrel distortion.

    The only portions that looked 'washed out' were at the beginning, the backlit scenes, which usually resuts in a substantial loss of contrast.

    So essentially, the look(s) are achieved by learning how to do photography and how to do image editing.

    Don't bother! Looks like the OP was a 1 post wonder.
