im shooting on 16mm film and i need to shoot day sequences which require warm and cool tones.
im using 500T stock ,so after balancing with 85 filter for day light...how should i give warm and cool tones ?
if i use tungsten sources or if i put up CTO on hmi's ....then will this give me that desired warm look ??
and by not using correction for daylight, i will get cool look,but am wondering if it will add too much blue . suggest me about this ...

the are hundreds of ways to give your image a certain color. you could use 1/2 ctb´s on your tungsten lights to get a warmer look or 1/2 cto´s on your hmis, you can use filters (something like coral, check the tiffen page to see which filters are available) or you can go for color correction in postproduction...

On 500T with 85, I would use plain uncorrected tungsten sources for warm tones, and put at least 1/2 CTB on daylight sources if they need to be cooler than white. Use your eyes and make judgement on color, if uncorrected tungsten is too warm for you, put 1/2 CTB on them.
