Interesting.. a trick I found, to a similar effect, is to use a smudge of Gaussian blur on titling. It gives that kind of "produced", larger than life effect that grain seems to have for video.. it makes it cinematic.
Take my band's logo - here's the base building block - which looks exactly like, well, an image with a True Type font writing over it, powerpoint-like (ok, but not particularly cool)
and here's the same image with a small amount of blur on the logo itself. It kinda fattens it up and makes it pop in a different way, the blurring suggesting an analogue, imperfect process to capture the image, which gives it a more "realistic" feel - for want of another word (which is in line with the band ethos of doing analogue recordings of stuff as opposite to use synths etc).
