Do you have any tips to make similar glaring effects with FCPX?

- Lens flare, caused mainly by the fact that a lot of it is heavily backlit, and maybe
- Composited stop flashes and general film clutter.
I'm not sure if they've used any of the latter or whether it's simply the way it's shot, slightly chaotically with the sun very much behind the subject. Given certain optical configurations you can get a somewhat similar veiling effect.
I think that was probably shot on some sort of DSLR (checking the Vimeo info, I discover it was a 5D mark 2) and probably in the standard picture style, as it's quite high contrast with rather clippy whites. I think this would have been better shot in "neutral" or "faithful" to mitigate that hard clip, but otherwise it's very pretty.
