Charles, is that John Marler in the first picture? He was in Atlanta back in the early to mid '90s. He's still wearing those suspenders I see.

Yup, that's him. I did these spots around '96 I think, so he was still pretty new in Boston at the time. Probably moved on since. Don't know if the suspenders are still in effect!

Yep, those look like the effect...but this can be done in post correct?

Thanks!

John,
Just wanted to let you (and others) know that I just used a couple of the "Joe's Filters" on a project and they were perfect for the job. Thanks very much for passing that reference along.

No problem, Ken. Yep...Joe has put together a pretty handy and affordable set of filters. If you get a chance, watch his "Ice Cream" video.

I'm gonna give away my age.

Long time ago we used vaseline petro jelly to blure our shots on wide format stills and 35mm.

It still fun to play with. We also used window or door screen for special efects. Just set you f stop to and adjust your iris and play.

I have know some guys to shoot video through 'wax paper' and plexiglass. You can also shoot through tinted two layer glass panes. We made boxes for the cameras and just slipped the glass or screen element into the box. We slid the clear glass into the box and covered it with petro jelly. Sometimes we even colored the jelly with food colouring!

All this was before cool filters were developed for us. And post work.

All this stuff worked for still and very shot video clips, but for full feature it takes to much time and hard to match the previous shoot.

Post filters are cool.

A tilt-and-shift (also known as a perspective correction lens), when used right, can give you that half-frame blurred look as well.

If you've got the EOS adapter, there are some Canon Tilt-and-Shift lenses you can play with.

The TS lenses are wonderful. The drawbacks are cost and the fact that combined with the EOS EF adapter they all become telephotos ranging from about 200mm to over 600mm, in 35mm terms (4X to 12Xmag.). But great for tight shots.
