Punchy MV Look

The reason I'm posting this here is because I'm using a GL2 for this. What's the best way to achieve the look in music videos, sometime referred to as Punchy. It's a very fluorescent look (probably done using Kino Flos or such?) that's used in a lot of music videos. I don't know if any other way to describe it. They also use that look on the HBO/Cinemax sit-down interview things they have between movies or shows sometimes, usually with the producer or director of a show/movie that is being done exclusively for HBO or premiering on either network. Sorry for the vagueness of the description, but those are the best examples I can come up with.

Such "looks" are not created in-camera. They're generally created in post-production.

Tell us what post platform you're using and I'll move your post to an appropriate section of the forum.

Thanks and I'm sorry I put this in the wrong forum. I'm running FCP 5.0. One reason I placed it here was to see what kind of lighting/camera setting I might use to achieve a better look in post.
