    Apologies if this has been posted before but this is well worth watching. On the set during shooting of The Crown talking to the DP Adriano Goldman

    Thanks, great referral. I do like the look of the Crown with the Tiffen Glimmer Glass. Glimmer Glass is one of my go-to filtrations.

    How did you change filters without the subject moving at all?

    LOL! I knew that would be one of the questions asked. Very good for the first question. I cheated

    I used Tiffen's DFX 4.0. This allows me to use almost any of Tiffen's optical filter looks in post. Bringing me the option to offer lens filter effects into much lower end productions. On the practical side, I have literally dozens of 4 x 5.6 and circular filters and a couple of matte boxes now gathering dust because they are too large and involve too much rigging for mirrorless and many of the smaller video cameras. Everything from NDs to ND grads to the old school colored grads, Promists white, black, warm, enhancing, etc that were popular in their day. These physical filters also complicate travel today in these compromised travel days when flying interstate with just an interviewer and shooter who has to cart all of his own "small" camera kit, lights, and sound. The rumor is that Tiffen sold out their DFX software to Digital Film Tools as it was seriously affecting their "real glass" sales. It's now been bought out by Boris FX. Love the software. Nearly everything is done in software grading these days and seeing the flexibility and availability of these "optical filters" with the ability to rehearse many film looks, lighting gobos FX, and just pure grading power all available in one package DFX was a definite starter for me when Tiffen first released the package.

    EDIT: I've added a video down below that I believe is no longer available that better explained Tiffen DFX.

    Virtually any optical filter effect you can see in the following clip is available in DFX 4.0 and is highly customizable and can be saved as one of your presets.

    Haven't seen The Crown but I really enjoyed the BTS. Thanks for posting. There really is a unique energy on a bigger production like this that came through well here. It's humbling to see how the big productions do it. All of the things that I wish I had the time/money/manpower to pull off on my small sets, they execute on the big ones (and then some). Sometimes that's just having an uninterrupted moment to think -- I liked Adriano's comment about having the freedom to exercise his creativity.

    Yes, it really shows how different larger scale productions are from OMBs. Not even close to being related. As a OMB, it is amazing to me to see a large group of people working together with one single purpose. Seemingly plodding along but leaving no stone unturned for quality.

    The steadicam operator for the F55 was 2 inches taller before the filming started.

    Chris, are you sure the Tiiffen software is really necessary? I graded this version of your original in about a minute using Resolve. It would have been even faster if just chose whatever I liked and wasn't trying to come close to the look of your Bronze Glimmer. I think I've reduced the hot spot on his forehead even better than the Tiffin filter.

    Coincidentally I just came across this new diffusion plugin for Davinci Resolve called "Scatter" at the Lift Gamma Gain Forum:

    It is Mac only.
