TV Movie Custom Preset

I've been experimenting with presets for a few weeks now, and I've been trying to get a film-like look for TV. I started off using the Cine Video preset that was already on the camera. After realizing it was a piece of crap preset, I started experimenting, and this is what I came up with. I based it off of the AVG Film preset, but just tweaked it a bit. I don't know how to put them on an SD card or anything so here's what it is.

Name: TV MOVIE

GAM: Cine 1
KNE: Low
BLK: Middle
PED: 0
SET: -3
SHP: -2
HDF: M
DHV: 0
COR: 2
NR1: Off
NR2: Low
CMX: Cine 1
CGN: -4
CPH: 0
RGN: 0
GGN: 0
BGN: 0
RGM: -4
RBM: 0
GRM: 4
GBM: -16
BRM: 0
BGM: -4

Please offer any suggestions if you wish. I'm just testing. Here's some screen captures I took. The first one is me with the Cine Video Preset, the one to the right is with the AVG FILM preset, and the one on the bottom is with the TV MOVIE preset.

the lighting seems kind of variable between shots, which makes it hard to judge. also you need to shoot an image with more range in the colorspace. there's not enough color/contrast info here to make much of a judgment. the bottom image looks warmer and has more red but i'm not seeing how it is more film-ish, if that's what you're going for....

#3 is a little more crisp, but your reds seems to be popping too much.
take it outside, more indoors with a color spectrum, and into low light
to see how it preforms before you commit to anything. Using presets can
really screw you up once you commit to them and discover something you don't like in post.
