  1. Hello tom Antos, Am about to shoot a musical videoclip for a friend and I want to give it a blue light fill at the background, I understand I have to use blue gel (CTB) and put some smoke in the Air so that the light can reflect through it,
    But show what I don’t understand is the fact that it’s a videoclip, should I keep the smoke machine working while I shoot or should I off it b4 I shot, please check minute 1.20 sec of this song, the night shot with the boys
