So i've been tasked in DoP'ing a music video next month and at the directors request, he want's that 70's style look, as we shall be re-creating a 'top of the pops' style performance for the band.
My references for this sort of thing are basically anything Bruno mars has put out over the past 4 years:
Bruno Mars - Treasure:
Bruno Mars - When I Was Your Man:
Pheonix - J Boy:
Ideally, due to budget restraints, it would have to be digital and as we'll be renting off a friend for a silly price, so it will most probably be an Epic. However i'm aware 16mm would of been ideal for this.
So my question is, setting aside camera movement etc, what would you suggest for the 'look'?
I'm quite set on hiring some Tiffen star filters for the star effects and throwing a 1/2 pro mist in the mix to bloom the highlights on an old vintage zoom, but what would you suggest for de-grading the quality of the image?
Thanks in advance,
