Brown filtering; Sepia, Tobacco, etc.
Posted 06 September 2008 - 09:12 PM
I have a job in a month and it's set in 1930's in the fields of Delaware. To establish this feel I want to use some type of a brown filtering; Sepia, Tobacco, etc. Does anyone have recommendations of any type or brands to use? Or any other kind of filters that could possibly work?
Originally I was going to use an orange color but now darker earth tone is really what the film needs. Any thoughts?

You should try Tiffen's Antique Suede - I prefer them to tobacco as they have a slightly more sepia tone.

If you are you a DI you may want to expose normal and add color later.
One job I worked on shifted from using a Tobacco or Tobacco like filter during its first several seasons and then left it to the post guys to do.
Most Colorists would prefer the DP don't do anything that limits what they can do in the post house. But that is the subject for another thread.
