Well, if you're not working with masters, you've opened up a world of possibility. You could optically (or contact) print your B&W footage onto color film utilizing color filters, you could use some of the commercially available toning products (though you would have to prep your film if the fixer contained hardener, as it would from a commercial lab), you could use commercially available food coloring (some of my students use q-tips and uncut food coloring on B&W film with gorgeous results), experiment with stained-glass dyes, and other paints. The possibilities are endless...
