Trouble finding a look

Hi guys,

I very good friend of mine asked if I could do a quick video of him playing guitar and so I did, but Im having trouble color correcting the footage to look more filmic. Ive tons of videos shot with a MarkII that look incredible, but I have to say Im not very please with the look Ive got. Any tips?

You need to either add some lighting or not shoot him silhouetted against a large window. The dynamic range required for most of the shots are more than any camera can deliver least of all a poor little 5D2.

The original was a little heavy on the green.
I balanced it a bit, let the brightest bits of the luma scale blossom a bit with a glow and crushed the blacks...
