Don't be mislead;

we are shooting a video under 1-2 inches of water; see link below.

The set is getting built outdoors, and from what I've heard, we will be silking off the sun, and using a 6K to light the top of the water. The band will be below the water where camera is as well. No on is going on top of the water.

There will be 3/4'' plexiglass holding the water above our heads. We shouldn't come in contact with any water all day.

I'm wondering, will 1-2'' of water necessitate the use of an 85 to warm things up a bit? Should I be worried about needing an IR filter?

Let me know if I need to explain further.

(looks like a cool effect ......) :)
1-2" of water is not deep enough to worry about losing various wavelenths coming through (starting with red, orange..through to violet...etc), don't worry about it.
Assuming your 6K is an HMI, and you're using tungsten-balanced film, I'd use an 85.
But you could always fix it in post.......

Copy that, I'll have an 85 on standby, but considering the red is 5000K balance, this might be alright?
