Filtering with Brown tones, advice anyone?
Posted 06 September 2008 - 09:16 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?
We'll be shooting 7201 and 7205.
Originally I was going to use an orange / yellow color but now after seeing the locations darker earth tone is really what the film needs. Any thoughts?

As for your brown tones, I think that the ones you mentioned are a good option. I have used in the past an Antique Suede filter to augment era and brownish tones. But then I suppose the best advice to give you is to test.
Get a stills camera together with the filters that you think you might need and take some pics. Only then will you really know what you want to use.

Indoors, it's harder to lose a stop or two for a filter like that.
Brown is really a desaturated orange... if you have a way of desaturating the image, then you could just warm up the interiors and pull the chroma down later to match the look of the exteriors shot with Chocolates, etc.
