For the look of Disturbed’s “Are You Ready?” music video, I wanted to create a custom filter for the exterior sequences. I knew it would be a full schedule leaning almost entirely on natural light, especially since the exteriors were long chase sequences with a constantly moving camera and actor.
I wanted to keep a stark contrast for the post-apocalyptic vibe of the video, but I also wanted to lower the range between highlights and shadows so all information would be safely within exposure (considering the circumstances of the uncontrolled shooting environment). And typical contrast filters tend to haze things more than I wanted for this project.
Lastly, as an artistic choice, I wanted to try to put a green fringe on areas of high contrast: an optical way to grunge up the scene and make it unique.
I manufactured the filter shown in the second photo (which is in its unfinished state before being heat treated, fine tuned, cleaned, and sealed inside glass). It’s a bit bolder than my usual filters. I tried to keep an eye on f-stop and lens focus distance while shooting to avoid any distinct patterns being overlaid on footage, which is a possibility with any element put in front of a lens.
In addition to accomplishing a grungy look, it had the added bonus of multifaceted green light flares, as seen in this test video. 🎥

You had me at 🍕ARRI’s new FSND filters have an oleophobic (oil repelling) coating, which Audra from @lemac_australia made sure to put to the test.
