I am shooting a project next week on a Blackmagic cinema camera (in filmlog), and in one indoor scene I would like to have yellow highlights that will color the skin. Examples below.

 

How is this look achieved? Is it all done in post? Or do I need actual yellow filtered lights on set?

 

 

thanks,

marcus

That warmth was either done with gels or by dimming down some tungsten light bulbs, likely the second. It stands out as warm because the room light is very blue in comparison.

If they are sat by a fire then it probably is that they've probably gelled room lighting with some CTB and the firelight practical with some CTO or Amber gel. Don't underestimate the power of gels - don't leave it to post. Very nice screenshot - some DOPs insist on use same colour lights - but if the background was orangy then it wouldn't have the same feel of wanting to huddle by the fire - or whatever it is they are doing. I quite like mixed lighting when it is done well and intentional.
