i recently saw the movie "holly smokes" lighted by dion bebee , i loved the work he did in the blacks, all the shadows are greenish.
how do you achieve an effect like this and is it possible to colorize, blue, red or yellow?

Two ways to deliberately get colored shadows:

1. Flash the film with the color you want in the shadows, either with an in-camera flashing device, or by your lab.

2. Underexpose the film for that layer -- a magenta filter will restrict green exposure, giving green shadows when you time the midscale to "normal". But you will lose shadow detail in that layer.

test, Test, TEST.

I don't know what technique Dion used.
