Hi everyone,

 

I'm currently preparing for a music video. A couple of scenes will need a misty dreamlike look to it (example down below)? I understand old glass is the best to get this look, but I would like to know the different type that I could rent.

 

I currently live in the UK wanted to know the most accessible filter and lenses needed to provide an image like this?

 

Thank you for Reading

 

Christopher

I believe a tiffen Glimmer Glass filter will do the desired effect.  They come in varying strengths so you may want to just rent a set.

ProMist too (or better a Warm Pro Mist) filter, as would a Classic Soft, Or if you want to go CRAZY you can rub nose-greese onto a clear filter and get the streaky effect just where you like.

Personally I'm a fan of Warm Black Pro Mists, but they woudln't lower contrast as much as promist filters.

To me, it looks like it was probably made with plugins.

 

It's "Raised by Krump", right? The image you attached could easily be a still from a modern hip hop music video.

 

Have a look at these two tutorials:

My pleasure Christopher. And while you can do a bunch in post these days; trust me it's much more fulfilling and easier to get it in camera most of the time ;)

Tiffin makes a plugin suite called DFX that can replicate nearly all the tiffin filters in post. I use it a lot for stylistic filters like diffusion, promist, etc.Of course, while I think it has ND filter and polarizer options, you need to use real ND's and polar filters on set.
