How do I create this blurry shakey film style?

How do I create this style that's in this video? I like the blurry shots but I don't know how to make shots blurry.

Are you talking about any shots in particular?

Otherwise if you want blurry shaky shots simply hold the camera and throw it out of focus with a manual lens/manual focus setting on your camera.

Those shots were made with a very fast lens (probably a prime) and then the camera operator pulled focus while filming. This results in these bokeh balls you can see there.
Just use a prime lens and go manual focus.
If you don't have a prime yet a canon 50mm f/1.8 would be a good starting point. You can buy it for just $125 at Amazon.
