How to create THAT Neon Look.

i shot the following Video using an URSA Mini and a GH5 for the night exteriours. I am looking for a way to get the neon highlights even bloomier and more oldschool/ 80ies?
Does anyone have a suggestion for my next project?


Use an old lens from the 80s

Shoot lenses that bloom more wide open, and filters will do a great job for that as well. Glimmer glass, Hollywood black magic, promist. Stronger it is the more bloom effect. Any of those at like a 1/2 or more should produce that look quite strongly.

Thanks for your reply! It's quite a special task: i looked for some of the filters and was using a promist 1/4 on this project. But i am not shure for which set of lenses to look...

I think hollywood blackmagic will bloom a lot. My 1/2 definitely gives it a strong bloom.
Lenses - some of the Xeens bloom wide open. I think the 14mm but that's very wide. I test a butt-load of 'em here if you're bored enough to watch haha:

Please stop posting this. This is the fourth time, and if these boards had proper forum functions I would be reporting you for spam.

Also your light is not nearly strong enough to create that bloom you're looking for. You can rub vaseline on your glass and it still won't bloom properly without a strong light source. Please stop buying filters and lenses thinking it will solve everything.

I tried to post this while i was still waiting for the approval of my account and it did not work. Now the several attempts seem to come up one by one. Somehow i cannot delete them as well... My apologies!
