Hello creative people!
Today, I wanted to share with you my color grading tricks to turn some footage shot during the day into a night scene (fairly) seamlessly.
I've used this trick on a couple videos, and it's always the same process:
1) Darken everything, while giving your shot the tint you want (blue, green...) to fit the atmosphere of your night scene.
2)"Turn on some lights", by brightening certain areas: lamps, windows, car headlights... Basically anything that would be lit up at night.
3) If the scene takes place outside, adding some "night ambience" sound design really helps selling it!
Here is another video in which I pulled this trick:
