Here is a tutorial for chromy i've been working on, feel free to add your own tutorials on to the end of the thread.

Bleach Bypass tutorial
begin with two exactly the same clips on the timeline which are the same footage and length. go to the object view on the top clip, desaturate it and make it tranparent as much as you like depending on the dark type of film you are trying to create. This method has been used on films to give a darker and scarier look to the film.

Hope this helps

New tutorial here based on curtinparloe's tutorial in the filmmakers forum.

Bleached effect 2

Start by having 2 of the same clips on the timeline. (each on a different layer). on the top clip add a box blur and slide it to 2. Add a transparency and slide it to around 50 depending on the effect you want to achieve. temp render. on the lower clip, add a contrast and put it up until you feel it looks right, from then you can choose to add a desaturate effect if you feel it looks better. then render as you would.
