In the free/shareware category, there's some impressive stuff, but its still a lot of work. Davinci Resolve Lite, or Red Giant Colorista are both limited versions from pro video tools companies . . .

If it were a soundless loop it might be a bit easier. There are packages to correct tint - like the ones mentioned above - in videos but also some better software that can correct the tints in individual frames. You could parse every frame out using one package and then apply corrections to each frame in a batch mode perhaps but then you have the problem of sync'ing the sound back with a regular film.
