    if this is the effect ur looking for...

    1: adjust the curves so as to bring out the max details while providing suitable contrast in photoshop first.
    2: adjust the saturation and desaturate it a lil.
    3: add a layer of black. set to a low opacity.
    4: draw 2 black rectangles on top and bottom

    i suggest that blue curve shld be adjusted till u get a stronger shade. cause mine not so strong i think

    If you own a video editing software like APP(adobe premiere pro) or FCP(final cut pro) play around with the 3way colour correction settings.

    Low Contrast - Spreads light from highlights to darker areas; leaves bright areas bright; lowers contrast, mutes colors. Makes videos look more like film! Available in several grades.

    Could this be the answer? if it is... then i think the filter rocks... bcuz in sch i did a few video work, trying to achieve this kind of cinematic "white balance" effect is quite a pain in post production especially from scene to scene where the lighting is different... and albeit trial-and-error, v tedious.

    =.= i wanna chop ur head off. i thought u meant in photoshop.

    and yes u could use filters... but usually ppl do it in post edit. 1: incase u dun want the effect later on, u can always use the raw footage. one u add a filter, the lost colors are lost.

    check out supernatural the series. they use the same color cast as shown in ur screeny. and i think they do it in post edit too cause i seen their gag reels.

    looking a bit green in comparison... throw in a touch of magenta with curves and you should be ok...

    Another way to do it: Open a hue/sat adjustment layer and use the colorize option, with settings about like this ... then lower layer opacity. (I used 55%)

    Tried with some curves adjustment. Maybe we did some on portraits should be better and easier to compare.

    nice technique. maybe u should try lowering opacity to 30 and overlay on the original to see the effect? bcuz i think the skin tone is too blue liao

    You could adjust it to anything you like. I was just aiming to get as close as possible to the skin tones in the original post, which are quite blue.

    The tone can be achieved in 2 ways:

    1. In traditional darkroom by processing C41 with E6
    2. Digital processing: Channel swopping.
