@filzilla Also a good point about blue...especially on Sony cameras. I've had good luck with blue on my Canon XL1, but that was EONS ago. :)

Good point about white. I've had good luck with Philips globes being "close enough" (within 100-150K) of each other. Personally, I always keep lots of pre-cut 1/8 CTB & CTO lying about so I can tweak as needed. However, with four or six of 'em on a 5x6, they blend quite nicely.

comment What media can I legally include into my videos?
attorneys: spread the word out to EVERYONE that you need an attorney to look at contracts in exchange for producer credit. Film contracts are just contracts; entertainment law speciality not needed. Modify an existing contract/release to suit your needs, then have that attorney give it a looksee to make sure you didn't shoot yourself in the foot. You'll likely find a friend who knows a lawyer who'd be ~tickled~ to get a screen credit for ten minutes of his time. Know any law professors who need a contract to discuss in a class? Volunteer yours and sit in. DIY means thinking way outside the box
