Filmlike 25p custom preset for on the fly doco? Suggestions?

Just new to experimenting with custom presets. Had a ball testing all the presets, but I must say, I'm a little overwhelmed by the choices. I now have 42 different cameras :)

I am shooting an on the fly doco with limited lighting (just an on camera light). I do a lot of stuff from the shoulder, on the move, as it happens.

For the first time I want to shoot in 25p HDV and was wondering if someone could give me recommendations for a custom preset that will give my footage a more filmlike quality, but will also be robust enough to handle reality footage shot quickly, with minimal lighting.

I'd like a preset that is vibrant feel rather than a washed out 16mm 70's feel ( for this project anyway, but i do love the look of old 16mm and 8mm footage from the 70's)

I know I've got a bit of testing a head of me, but just wondering if those after a 'filmlike' quality to their footage, could point me in the right direction
