I am actually making tests in order to create moody, organic, kind of abstract pictures with subjects out of focus but where the effect is never still and constantly evolving. As what I'm saying is certainly not very clear, here's a great video by Alexander Brown for James Blake that is a reference:
Do you have any idea what he could have used, especially for the warm light effects at the end? Also, Bruno Aveillan's camera work is an influence.
I had good results with close up filter moving just in front of the lens, also with prisms and different kind of glasses. Would you have other things to advice me? How could I play with lights coming inside the lens? I'd like to have ray of lights coming and going back from the frame, like something that is gently burning the frame from the inside. I think I'll also try to flash the lens from the side.
Also, did anyone ever tried liquids in front of the lens?
Thanks for your help!

you might also try hand holding the lens detached from the body.
