Dreamy, high key, heavenly look.

How do I achieve that dreamy, heavenly feel?
Sort of like the one in Beyonce's Halo music video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnVUHWCynig

Three thoughts:

1. Lots of light.
2. Lenses with special uncoated elements (see http://cinescopophilia.com/testing-hanse-inno-tech-celere-36mm-hs-uncoat... and https://www.bhphotovideo.com/explora/video/features/create-lower-contras... and http://cinescopophilia.com/zeiss-uncoated-super-speeds-comparison-test-f...).
3. Shoot with a log profile and don't apply a standard LUT.

You can also shoot with the lens detached from the camera body. It lets lots of light in from the sides of the mount. The hardest thing is focus, as it will change with any micro movement of the lens forward or back.

I've had some success shooting the old medium format lenses detached as the glass has some wiggle room on either side vs a s35 sensor.
