Well not very much to ask about here, the topic says it all :)

I just went to this workshop where I worked with "fluorescent green 4700" and "chrome orange" amongst others. I really loved the eye-poppiness those gels did to the video. Though I can't find them in rolls from Adorama.com

Please link to the photo site that sells your favourite gels online (and ships internationally!) :)

Thanks in advance :)

Rosco Cyan 60 is one of my favorites for night exteriors, along with Lee Straw and Lee No Colour Straw.

Here in Queensland, Australia, you can get them by the roll or in sheets from The Production Shop, or by the roll from John Barry Sales.

Hi Matthew,

Do you have an example you can direct (us) to where you used Cyan 60 for Night Ext?

I am intrigued.

Hmmm I tried to buy from www.filmtools.com but they don't ship to Norway (even though they ship to Sweden and Finland). Anyone knows of a good and not overly expensive net shop that also ships outside the EU or US?

Thanks in advance

Seems http://www.multitechnic.no are Lee Filters stockists in Norway. Don't know whether the gel you want is Rosco or Lee but if it's Rosco then Lee will do something very similar
