Hi!
I am preparing for a shoot on digital. I want to obtain a raw greenish look by geling a cool kinoflo with what I think is called "plus green" gel. I dont want to obtain a heavy greenish look, but something light. Any suggestions or input on this?

You can use "Cool White" tubes in a flo / Kinoflo for that look, or add Full or Half Plus Green to a daylight tube.

You can also white-balance through a magenta gel (Minus Green).

what mini-dv tapes would best register this look? I know if I wanted to shoot on film I would go with Fuji. Would you have any suggestions?

Tape stock doesn't matter. If anything, green is the one color that all video cameras can handle since it is the least compressed /sub-sampled color. You just have to use enough green to get the saturation level you like. Sometimes the green is stronger on film, so you either have to use more green on video or white-balance through magenta, or color-correct it later for more green. I once white-balanced using a pink script page (and tungsten light) to get a Cool White flo in a bathroom to be more sickly-green.
