In the movie The Ring, the majority of the shots have a dark green hue to them. Is there a good way to mimic this effect? It is just a filter?

i haven't seen it since it first came out, but in general i think i remember the look you're talking about. it can be achieved in a few different ways. lighting, filtration, color timing. usually it's a combination of all of these. knowing how particular stocks react differently to different types and temperatures of light will also be incredibly helpful and allow you to achieve similar results. fex: a different type of green effect can be achieved with using uncorrected flouros. you may want to check the backlog of American Cinematographer magazing and see if Bazelli's work on The Ring was written up in it. i'm not sure if it was. It still comes down to good lighting and working with the lab. Tiffen glass is also really handy :)

I felt like they should have given credit to the Japanese version somehow but other than that it was a good movie.
