19. Tutorial 2-Cinematography / Film Look / Lighting /…

Click to Tweet:​gu0lOG

Learn what makes great looking images in film, music videos etc. It's not always the camera but how you design the shots. In this second tutorial I try to explain how I setup a very stylized looking performance shot for a music video.

The "streak filter" I use in this video is an actual camera filter you put in front of your lens while shooting. They fit on your mattebox and usualy come in 2 and 3mm sizes. 2mm produces a thicker and more noticable streak and 3mm is less noticable.

Thanks to Christopher Charles for starring in the video!

    Nice job, I tend to forget how important adding foreground elements can add to a composition. This is an excellent walkthrough.

    Where can I buy a "streak filter" for my mattebox?
  • TLA Productions 1 year ago
    not sure where you live, but here's one link for UK:​page116.html

    In Canada we just rent them from any Film rental place... I know Panavision also carries their own streak filters in different variations. Hope this helps!

    Also, Tiffen makes them, but they call it a 2 point Star Filter instead of a streak filter.
  • Jiri plus 1 year ago
    Thank you very much... In our country I found many filters (not for mattebox but directly for lens), but only 4 point star, 6 point star, 8 point star... The result is different (as 2 point star). However, 6 point star looks nice, mayby it will be usable too...
  • Jiri plus 1 year ago
    I found shop where I was able buy streak filter from Tiffen (4x4). Result is great. Thank you!
  • TLA Productions 1 year ago
    Great! Im glad it worked out for you... if you can, please post contact info to the place where you got the filter for others who might want to buy them. Specialy since they're so hard to get.

    How much did it cost by the way?
  • Jiri plus 1 year ago

    Great tutorial Tom! What kind of light did you use for the rim light on his back? Did you use a color gel on it, because it looks kind of blue? Beautiful work!
