That Cyan Color Shift!

This is especially true to films shot on film. I've always felt it added to richness to the whole piece in that it manages to elicit another layer of texture.
Here's an example:
Notice the cyan color shift to the left and on Tommy Lee Jones' hat.
The film "Biutiful" is a good example of the cyan shift in combination with green. As well as the movie Blade Runner:
I know much of this effect is a done in the D.I process, but what can one do in lighting to get the effect in-camera? Is it simply Kino's with Cool Whites with a green spike to them or perhaps HMI's with 1/2 CTB...5600K with-3 green ?

PS. Putting effect gel on ie. Kino flo or HMI will give you an effect only on areas hitted by the fixture, shadows will be "neutral" and that looks odd sometimes.

surprisingly good article from hurlbut on lighting a scene, he speaks about color contrast in his fill, although fairly subtle in this scene.
not to deter you.

And yes, orange and cyan color contrast is the new trend in Hollywood.
